Renowned astronomer Ian Ridpath takes us through the stars, planets, nebulae and galaxies of the Solar System. Wil Tirion, the world's leading uranographer, has compiled charts of each of the 88 constellations, with data and notes on bright stars and other objects of interest that can be seen in the night sky with the aid of binoculars and telescopes. There are also monthly maps of the night sky for all of the latitudes throughout the globe, and it is the only guide to provide yearly planetary data as a downloadable web resource, updated annually.
Packed with information on everything you want to know about the night sky, together with tips on choosing and using binoculars and telescopes, this is the most complete guide for every astronomer, wherever they are in the world.
