Editorial Reviews

Review

“This field guide, usable in both hemispheres, could replace a whole shelf of sky atlases, monthly almanacs and observing manuals.”
―Guy Ottewell, author of the Zodiacal Wavy Charts, Map of the Starry Sky and Uranus, Neptune and Pluto: A Longer View

“This is an indispensable handbook of tools and charts for finding all the treasures of the night sky.”
―Edward Brooke-Hitching, author of The Golden Atlas and The Sky Atlas

“Dickinson knows the territory, and has picked out the best objects to challenge you on a dark night– whether they’re other galactic stars and nebulae, or galaxies pinwheeling millions of light-years away. This book has it all.”
―Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer, SETI Institute
