Review

Which telescope should I buy?
Do I need to learn the constellations, or will a computerized telescope find things for me?
How do I take pictures with a telescope?

Answers to these and hundreds of other questions were provided in the first edition of The Backyard Astronomers Guide, which established itself as the indispensable reference to the equipment and techniques used by the modern astronomy enthusiast. Now, authors Terence Dickinson and Alan Dyer, both full-time astronomy writers and communicators, have produced an expanded, thoroughly updated edition with hundreds of new illustrations that again sets the standard for accessible, reliable information.
Their straightforward approach makes The Backyard Astronomers Guide one of the most user-friendly astronomy books ever produced. More than 100,000 copies sold in previous editions.
