The Best Intro to Astronomy Book?

by jimhaleyscomet on Mar 27, 2008

This is one of or perhaps the absolute best introduction to Astronomy book. The first part of the book is "coffee table" quality with wonderful text and pictures about what is out there beyond earth. Then comes the night sky navigation section with maps for the seasons and great maps about individual constellations. The unique thing here is he lists details of objects right on the maps. This makes looking at the night sky much more fun. If you want to introduce a person or friend to Astronomy with a gift, this book is far better than a telescope. With the section on gear, it will save you more than the price of the book when you decide to purchase Astronomy gear.

just the best

by chaban on Dec 11, 2007

Well, perhaps I'm not very expert in astronomy, but I can tell you that I've read a lot about it, and when I started reading Nightwatch I was fasinated by the easiness of the explaining method. If you are new in the field you'll adore it and you will start stargazing in the same night. And if you are searching for an introduction book to amateur astronomy, then this is your best friend. The 2ed chapter is a marvelous way to understand the universe, and the 4th will give you the very simple way to understand and keep in mind star constillations. then with every chapter you'll like astronomy more and more....You'll like the last excellent updated edition with its high quality images taken by amateur astronomers. I'd recommend this book before buying any astronomy equipments, or even before starting stargazing. The auther gives us his long life experience in just one book.
