I read the book but haven't actually begun any of the projects covered in it, mainly because I just like to observe with my telescope and not get mired in the science. However, the book did help me become more familiar with the use of telescopes as scientific instruments and not just as windows on the universe.
My experience so far is that astronomy books are densely written, and begin with complex concepts and terminology. This one is no different.
Also note how old this book is. I suspect, but don't know, that it needs to be updated.
