"O'Meara is an exceptionally talented observer, and he shares for most objects the equipment he used and his notes on how the object appeared to him. He also distills the astrophysical literature with the care one would expect from a veteran columnist, and provides the reader with both a historical view of his targets' importance to the field and the most recent results on their unique nature. The book will be most useful as a cover-to-cover read as well." -C. Palma, CHOICE
"Observers up for some new challenges will enjoy the detailed descriptions and background information for each of the 109." - Terence Dickinson, SkyNews, November/December 2012

I like to get background information to complement my observing list of deep-sky objects, and O Mearas books deal with
many in my list. It is not meant to be a book you just sit down and read, but as reference material it is in my opinion
A wonderful addition Deep to the Sky Companion Series of books, and to observing guides in general!
