Turn Left at Orion is the ideal guidebook for beginning astronomers, and it can also be a useful tool for more experienced hobbyists. It gives all the information you need to find the planets, and nearly a hundred deep sky objects visible in the Northern hemisphere. Inside the book are plenty of maps and large format drawings that accurately depict what you’ll see through your telescope. No previous knowledge of astronomy is needed, and since descriptions are non-technical, stargazers of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy and learn from this book.
With over 100,000 copies sold since first publication, Turn Left at Orion is one of the most popular astronomy books of all time. It is a unique guidebook to the night sky, providing all the information you need to observe a whole host of celestial objects. With a new spiral binding, this fourth edition is even easier to use outdoors at the telescope and is the ideal beginner's book. Keeping its distinct one-object-per-spread format, this edition is also designed for Dobsonian reflector telescopes, as well as for smaller reflectors and refractor telescopes, and covers Southern hemisphere objects in more detail. Large-format telescope eyepiece views, positioned side-by-side, show objects exactly as they are seen through a telescope, and with improved directions, updated tables of astronomical information and an expanded night-by-night Moon section, it has never been easier to explore the night sky on your own. Authored by Guy Consolmagno and Dan M. Davis.
