Star-gazing with binoculars is rewarding and, for many, a lifelong passion!

He explains basic astronomy and the selection of binoculars, then goes on to discuss the stars, clusters, nebulae and galaxies that await the observer. He charts the sky seen from the northern and southern hemispheres season by season, providing detailed maps of all the constellations. In addition, the reader can also observe the Sun, Moon, planets, comets and meteors. The enjoyment of amateur astronomy is now available to everybody!
