'The bane of any budding astronomer in London or Los Angeles - or any big city - is light pollution from roads, houses, offices and their ilk illuminating the night sky. But Denis Berthier encourages us to put exasperation aside.' New Scientist 'Not everyone has the luxury of a really dark observing site or has the time to travel long distances to find unpolluted skies. This guide shows what can be achieved from small urban back gardens and even city balconies and rooftops.' Astronomy Now 'A slim book containing some good (and some amusing) pictures and graphics. Translated from the French, Berthier's love of astronomy is evident !'. Popular Astronomy 'It is very informative and I am sure all you require in one place for those with a basic astronomy interest.' Spaceflight
