Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Schaaf, the author of Seeing the sky and Seeing the solar system, now takes readers beyond our solar system and introduces them to a region astronomers refer to as "the deep sky." He details a variety of projects--requiring only a telescope, a good star map, and a dark sky--for anyone from bright youngsters and novices to veteran astronomy enthusiasts. Annotation c.
