A brand-new 'Star Finder', created specifically for observers in the Southern Hemisphere, with new specially commissioned digital star charts by Wil Tirion and text by John Woodruff.A concise, month-by-month calendar for star watchers in the Southern Hemisphere, the book features 12 charts showing the position of stars, constellations and other celestial objects in both northerly and southerly directions for each month of the year.The introduction explains the basic facts that observers need to know: the apparent motions of the stars, seasonal changes, star brightnesses, the nature of the Milky Way, and how the night skyis represented on maps.In addition, location tables are provided for the four planets bright enough to be seen easily from the Earth with the naked eye: Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The principal lunar features are also indicated on a pair of photographs showing the Moon at first quarter and at last quarter.Main map scale:
