Editorial Reviews

Review

"It can be tough for beginners to learn the constellations. Standard star charts contain so much information that they are confusing, and even a simple planisphere can be intimidating to people not familiar with the tool. Those who haven't a clue about right ascension or relative magnitude can still learn the stars with this marvelous new guide from Lafcadio Adams."
 --Arches Magazine

About the Author

Lafcadio has a scale model of the solar system in her living room, and it has been there longer than most of the furniture (since way back when Pluto was still a planet). Lafcadio has been teaching her fellow Earthlings about the various wonders of nature for over ten years, but her favorite subject to teach has always been astronomy. Lafcadio spends most of her time in the Pacific Northwest sleeping, avoiding the sun and learning to make things.

My Review: This is a great book for star gazers. I have always had a hard time picking out constellations but the diagrams in this book are great. I have the book on kindle now but the paperback is a must. Great to take the kids out in the yard and learn about the stars. A needed book for all shelves. I give this book a 5 star rating.

As a beginning stargazer, I picked up this book to help me learn the correct way to observe the stars and planets. This book was great, in that it gave history of how it all started and then explained was to view the night skies. I use a large binocular and tripod, and I can see the craters of the moon on a clear night. Stargazing is a WOW in my book. Check it out.

I bought this book because I want to be able to find the constellations. The book has large, clear illustrations of many constellations, which makes finding them easy to do. A very helpful guide to the night sky!

Thought it would have better pictures. My son seems to have little interest in the book. The search is on for a better book.
