This book describes bow the owner of biculars can use them for astromical observation. A full description of the 'bicular sky' is given, with details of all the most interesting objects. On a clear dark night, with a myriad stars shining down, the jewelled beauty and the unimaginable immensity of our universe is awe-inspiring. Some people make the investment that is required to buy a telescope, but for many others, stargazing through biculars can be just as rewarding and may lead to a deep interest and lifelong hobby! Patrick Moore has painstakingly researched this book to cater for such people. He carefully explains the rudiments of astromy and the selection of suitable biculars before discussing in more detail the array of beautiful astromical objects that await the bicular observer - stars, clusters, nebulae and galaxies. The night sky that is seen by observers in both rthern and southern hemispheres is charted season by season before a detailed presentation is made, with maps, of all the constellations. The use of biculars for observing the sun, the Moon, the planets, comets and shooting stars is then described. The illustrations throughout have been prepared by the artist Paul Doherty working in close collaboration with the author.
