9781532989186: An Easy Introduction to the Constellations: A Reference Guide to Exploring the Night Sky with Your Eyes, Binoculars and Telescopes

***This book includes both The Easy Guide to the Night Sky and Easy Things to See With a Small Telescope in a single volume - save 33% by buying one title instead of two!***

Written for the amateur astronomer who wants to discover more in the night sky, this book explores the constellations, reveals many of the highlights visible with just your eyes and binoculars and includes over sixty easy-to-find sights for small telescopes.

Highlights include:
* The myths and legends associated with the stars
* Bright stars and multiple stars
* Star clusters
* Nebulae
* Galaxies

Each constellation has its own star chart and almost all are accompanied by depictions of the highlights and binocular views of the best objects. For the small telescope sights, each object has its own page which includes a map, a view of the area through your finderscope and a depiction of the object through the eyepiece.

There’s also a realistic description of every object based upon the author’s own notes written over years of observations, useful tips and tricks designed to make your start in astronomy easier and pages to record your observations.

Whether you’re new to astronomy or are an experienced stargazer simply looking to learn more about the constellations, this book is an invaluable guide to the night sky and the sights to be found there.

About the Author:

A former monthly columnist for Astronomy magazine, Richard J. Bartlett has had a passion for the stars since the age of six.

His first website, StarLore, was featured in Sky & Telescope magazine in early 2001. Following that success, he freelanced for Astronomy, reviewing astronomical websites and software in his monthly Webweaver Picks column.

Additionally, he has moderated on the UniverseToday forums, operated his own astronomical messageboard and still manages his own space news website, AstroNews. (http://astronewsus.wordpress.com/)

His latest blog, The Astronomical Year, highlights current astronomical events on an almost daily basis. (http://theastronomicalyear.wordpress.com/)

Now living in the suburbs of Los Angeles, he still stops to stare at the sometimes smoggy night sky through the city's light-pollution.
