Although I'm an experienced astronomer, this remains my first GoTo guide when planning the next month's calendar. And a great tool for a lesson planner to Outreach groups in schools and organizations.

A good tool just to keep in your hip pocket (maybe it's a little big for that but hang onto it anyway).

It won't cost you a fortune and it'll be useful for years.
I bought this book to add to my other star and planet guide books. It is a very functional book for constellations and the night sky. It also has good information about Planets and Meteor Showers through 2014.I believe this would be a good book for beginners also. If you are new to night sky gazing it might take a little practice to place in the sky what's on the page but just remember to keep yourself oriented with a reference point in the sky. The book is as if you are looking at it over your head with the sky above it.The book gives good History and information on alot of the "main" constellations.
it is a good item
I use this before every observing session. I hope they publish one with dates beginning where this one leaves off. I have become very dependent on it as an alternative to subscribing to one of the monthly astronomy mags.
Very happy with seller. Bought upon my son's recommendation.
i bought this book for my nephew, to accompany him and his new telescope. he was more than thrilled with the experience, and i was thrilled with the layout of the book - it was easy for him to follow!
Excellent book, concise and very informative.Great pics and illustrations a must have especially for the beginner. I used it one night to compare to the sky i had and it was great, helped me find desire objects easily.
This book has enough detail to keep you busy for each month of the year and is easy to understand for a beginner. Anyone with a small telescope should consider this guide for their first step.
