This gets our vote as the best guidebook for beginning stargazers. Richard Berry, former editor of Astronomy magazine, leads you on a tour of the constellations, pointing out fascinating deep-sky astronomical objects that can be seen with a simple telescope or binoculars. The heart of the book is two sections of big, two-color sky charts. The first section features 12 charts that show the entire visible sky each month, accompanied by text that points out each month's sky attractions and constellation mythology. The second section comprises 23 charts of smaller regions of the sky, which highlight stars with unusual colors, star clusters, nebulas, and galaxies observable with small instruments. Separate chapters cover basics, such as how the stars move through the sky, points of interest on the Moon's face, and choosing and using a telescope. Softbound, 119 pages.
