Review

Exploring the wonders of the cosmos doesnt require expensive and complicated equipment -- the moons of Jupiter, breathtaking nebulae, and distant galaxies are all visible through binoculars. Binocular Highlights is a tour of 96 different celestial sights from softly glowing clouds of gas and dust to unusual stars, clumps of stars, and vast star cities (galaxies) -- all visible in binoculars. Each object is plotted on a detailed, easy-to-use star map, and most of these sights can be found even in a light-polluted sky. Also included are four seasonal all-sky charts that help locate each highlight.
