The sheer amount of information in this book may be overwhelming at first, but after even browsing through a few pages, you will learn a lot and crave for more. There are handy thumb-tabs on the side to help guide your way through this beauty. The photos are breathtaking and the background info on each of the constellations is superb. This is a must-buy for all astronomers, whether proffessional or amateur!!!!

I always carry this to show visitors for starwatches and Night Skies in the Observatory at the Franklin Instiute as a good beginning reference to the sky.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
