Description

This star guide helps amateur astronomers advance from easily observed objects to more difficult targets, and includes detailed descriptions of each class of object. The revised edition offers new chapters on Transient Objects and Naked-Eye Deep Sky Objects.

This star guide enables amateur astronomers to focus on a class of object, and using an observation list that begins with the easiest object, find and move progressively over a period of months to more difficult targets. Includes detailed descriptive summaries of each class of object. Amateur astronomers of all levels will find this book invaluable for its broad-ranging background material, its lists of fascinating objects, and for its power to improve practical observing skills while viewing many different types of deep-sky objects. This new edition of A Field Guide to Deep-sky Objects brings in a correction of out-of-date science along with two new chapters; Transient objects, and Naked-Eye Deep Sky Objects. This edition adds up-to-date information and on the objects mentioned above.
