About this book

The new Philip's 101 Objects to Spot in the Night Sky is a fun and practical guide to identifying and observing 101 of the most fascinating and exciting sights in the northern-hemisphere sky for young newcomers to astronomy, explaining what can be seen using the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope. In this book, author Robin Scagell shows the novice astronomer where to look in the sky to see a particular object, or group of objects or sights, which may be a planet, its rings or satellites, a series of lunar craters, a constellation, asteroids, meteors, a nebula, galaxy or star cluster, for example.

He explains what you can expect to see with just the naked eye and describes the object in detail, giving observing tips for better viewing. A concise 'fact file' is provided for major objects, and readers can award themselves 'points' for their skill in finding the object in the first instance, with higher scores given for spotting some of its more elusive or hard-to-see features. Philip's 101 Objects To See In The Night Sky is illustrated in full colour throughout, with approximately 300 high-quality photographs, diagrams and star maps.
