This is a new edition of Sir Patrick Moore's practical and popular "Guide to Stars and Planets". This latest edition has been updated with new information from the Cassini mission to Saturn and the Huygens lander on Titan, the Mars Express orbiter and the Spirit and Opportunity rovers on Mars' surface, and Deep Impact's encounter with a comet. Philip's "Guide to Stars and Planets" provides all the information you need to study the night sky with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope. It includes a detailed Moon map and a complete atlas of the constellations, and is suitable for observers in both the northern and southern hemispheres. A straightforward and comprehensive handbook, it opens with chapters on the Moon, the Sun, the planets, the stars and galaxies, as well as information on astrophotography, telescopes and an explanation of the apparent movement of the night sky. The second section of the book comprises a full set of constellation maps, created by renowned celestial cartographer Wil Tirion. The book concludes with a comprehensive glossary, and timelines of astronomy and space exploration.
