The Southern Sky Guide is a comprehensive and easy-to-use guide to the brilliant and ever-changing sights of the southern sky by night. Both beginners and advanced sky-watchers will get great value from this skilfully written book, whether they are using the naked eye, binoculars or a small telescope.
This introductory text will familiarise readers with the many and varied objects in the sky and their fascinating movements and changing appearances, as well the ancient myths and legends entwined around the groupings of stars. The book features two groups of maps. The 24 `Skyviews' give the appearance of the whole night sky every two weeks (or an hour of sidereal time). The 20 full star charts give a comprehensive account of particular areas of sky, with an accompanying text full of fascinating detail. It is designed to be easy to move from one map to another.
...an ideal book to accompany anyone who undertakes the scanning of the southern skies, with or without binoculars or a small telescope. - Science Books & Films.
"Wil Tirilon's cartography is clear and accurate, setting the standard in star atlases." - SkyNews.
