Description

"Stargazing 2005" was a popular addition to Philip's astronomy list last year, and the 2006 edition of this popular month-by-month practical guide to the changing night sky is expected to be equally well received. Written in a clear and accessible style by Heather Couper and Nigel Henbest, each month features a colour star map with the positions of the Moon and planets with features on that month's 'Special events', 'Object of the month', and 'Topic of the month', described in more detail. Also included are explanations of the planet's movements, a list of recommended deep sky objects and a review of the latest stargazing equipment. This is an exceptionally useful guide for both the seasoned observer and the beginner. Both Heather and Nigel are internationally recognised writers and broadcasters on astronomy and space.show more
