    Review quote
    'You don't need a telescope to learn where the constellations are - this book tells you exactly how to find them simply by looking at the sky. It's a useful skill to acquire: you can impress your friends when you stumble out of the pub by pointing out what's where in the night sky. The legends are fascinating too. This is a good book for someone who hasn't made their mind up about investing in a telescope.' The Times 'The third edition of this well-known book is most welcome ... Wil Tirion's illustrations are a real delight ... I cannot fault its value and appeal, and would recommend it to any newcomer to the night sky' Popular Astronomy
