About this product
- DescriptionViewing the Constellations with Biculars is a complete guide to practical astromy, written for beginners, intermediate-level astromers, and even people who have t yet turned their gaze to the night sky. The required observing equipment to get the full value from this book is more than a pair of regular 10 x 50 biculars, but even more can be seen with a small astromical telescope. This comprehensive introduction to astromy and practical observing is far more than a guide to what can be seen in the night sky through biculars. It introduces the reader to some basic (and some t-so-basic) astromical concepts, and discusses the stars and their evolution, the planets, nebulae, and distant galaxies. There is a guide to selecting and using biculars for astromy, as well, as a 'getting ready to observe' section containing invaluable practical hints and tips. The second part of the book is an extraordinarily complete atlas and guide to the night sky down to 30 * N (covering all the USA and Europe). It is illustrated with superb and sometimes beautiful amateur astromical photographs, detailed maps (down to 5th magnitude), descriptions, and data on all astromical objects of interest.
