This guide to the night sky makes it simple and easy to pinpoint specific stars and identify them by name. It uses transparent overlays and page-sized images of the night sky to identify stars, nebulas, galaxies and 15 of the most interesting constellations. Each major constellation is presented as a double page spread with a transparent overlay. Details include: Name of constellation; Location, luminosity, dimensions; Best season to observe; History and characteristics; Map of the constellation and its surroundings; Transparency showing the outline of the constellation and its surrounding stars; and Full page night sky photograph of the constellation. A wiro-binding (concealed within a hardback spine) allows the book to open flat at any page to keep the hands free for adjusting a telescope or viewing equipment. Attractively illustrated with clear star maps and spectacular photographs, this is an accurate and handy reference to the night sky.
