This book is a visual backyard astronomer's bible as this reference digs FAR deeper into what the constellations have to offer you and your telescope over the standard field guides. Though no atlas is given (rather axis coordinates), you can combine this book with, say a Tirion Sky Atlas 2000.0, and have an accurate visual and now informative introduction on what you'll be viewing. I've always liked combining the two together with my big dobs.

This guide will elaborate not only on deep sky objects, but the stars and their makeup as well. Keep in mind this is part of a volume set and does not cover all of the sky; it encompasses Chamaeleon through Orion. And what do you know? It's still prime time for Orion and friends to be viewed!

Conditions of the book are great overall, but not excellent. The covers, especially the rear, has creases. The spine itself is excellent, but the front cover with the graphics is pealing on the top portion. The sides of the pages have minor stains; what we expect to see from a book that is constantly used. Inside pages are tear and stain free from what I can see and have no notes or highlighting. There is the original owner's name on the front inside cover.

A very fun tour guide for the dark sky star gazer!

All nations welcome.
