Beginners who have just joined an astronomy club will not find a better first book.


Renowned comet-hunter and astronomy enthusiast David Levy presents an inspiring guide to learning constellations, choosing a telescope, and viewing the moon, planets, comets, double and variable stars, and deep-sky objects. He includes many anecdotes, a list of his favorite telescope objects, and even a few favorite poems. The final chapters cover eclipses, astrophotography, and (briefly) how to motivate children to learn about astronomy. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
