The other way this book sets the reader up for success is information on how to read and use star charts (the night sky is moving – charts in a book are not) and some basic terminology to someone new to the field can communicate with others. Most appreciated is the magnitude scale, so people new to viewing won’t become frustrated trying to view something beyond the capability of your own small telescope. This book has everything needed to get started using a small telescope.
