SUMMARY:

GREAT observing logbook for all levels, first-timer to experienced. Much of this review is directed toward a somewhat-experienced observer, but if you are a beginner, it applies to you too. Buying astro books sight-unseen is a risky proposition, so I'll provide tons of detail about what this book contains, and why it is helpful.

THE PROBLEM WITH OTHER OBSERVING BOOKS AND LOGBOOKS

If you're like me, you are slightly annoyed at the lack of PRACTICAL astronomy observing books out there for seasoned observers. Most astro books are the extremely basic, "this is what a galaxy is, this is how the sun works" kind that are ubiquitous in the bargain bins at your local BorderNobles. Those few books that deal with actual OBSERVING always seem to be the very, very insultingly basic type: "here's why you need a red flashlight, use one of these four seasonal charts, the larger dots mean brighter stars". There's an endless supply of such beginner books out there.

But what about practical things for those of us who KNOW all the basic things, but we want to develop and improve our observing skills? Those of us who want to learn about new deep-sky targets to seek out? The market is flooded at beginner level, but drops off quickly for people like us.

I've seen other "observing journals" out there; they are usually part of a beginner package that includes a planisphere, etc. If you were to examine these, they would be really annoyingly basic-- entry spots for "how many constellations did you see!" and "did you see the moon?", interspersed with all sorts of useless junk like zodiac folklore.

For many years I have observed the night sky. Countless times I wish I had a journal to document what I saw. This is a great little book to do the job!

I received this Stargazing Journal as a gift and didn't use it for quite a while. But when I did, I found it to be quite helpful. It is a nice small size yet big enough to tape in my astro-images, provides a helpful way of organizing my notes, and has some useful information in the back. A couple of my astronomy buddies saw it and also liked it so I got them each one and two more for myself for when I finish this one.

I love this product. It provides everything I wanted in an astro journal, and it includes a place to sketch what you observe.

This was a gift to my husband and he was very pleased with the journal. Thought it was laid out well and a helpful tool.
