13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Yuri, the reviewer on July 30, 1998
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book's main goal is to assist the reader in learning the sky pattern. This book has very nice wide-angle diagrams which show from 3 to 10 constellations each. There are helpful, dotted "star-hopping" lines and narration. Now for the photos: The author writes that there are 3 photos for every part of the sky: 1) from a very dark location, 2) from a less dark location, and 3) from a city location. This is so the reader could see how light pollution affects the sky's appearance. The photos are disappointing. First, it is hard to see anything in them unless you have magnifying glasses or are looking under strong light. Secondly, for each part of the sky, the 3 photos don't exactly match. This impedes side-to-side comparisons of the same part of the sky. The book would be much better, if for each diagram there was only one: more easily viewable photo matching exactly what is in the diagram.
