'... a useful beginner's guide to the binocular sky.' Sky and Telescope 'Binocular astronomy is currently enjoying something of a renaissance, so it is a pleasure to see this new edition of Patrick Moore's super book, which helped usher in the new era when it was originally published in 1987. Since then, this has been the introduction to the night sky that I've recommended more than any other ... If you know of someone whose enthusiasm for the night sky has been inspired, perhaps by recent views of Comet Hyakutake, I can think of no better gift than a pair of binoculars and a copy of this excellent book.' Brian Kelly, The Observatory
'This book would be a good buy for someone new to astronomy as it covers all aspects of observational work at a fairly basic level and would continue to be a useful information source for many years to come.' Linda Roberton, Astronomy Now
'This is the third edition of this useful book ... It is written in Patrick Moore's well-known, easy-to-read, personal style ... This book is a good general introduction to the night sky using binoculars and it should encourage the reader to go and look for themselves.' Alan Dowdell, Webb Society Reviews
Patrick Moore's painstakingly researched Exploring the Night Sky with Binoculars will help and encourage both casual and serious observers of our awe-inspiring universe. Sections on basic astronomy, selection of binoculars, detailed constellation maps and descriptions of stars, comets and galaxies are included in this beautifully illustrated manual.
