About this book

Astronomy enthusiasts are waking up to the enjoyment of touring the heavens through binoculars. Powers of resolution - especially of faint objects - are as much as 40 per cent better using binocular vision, and colour perception is also enhanced considerably. Add to this the affordability, ease of operation and portability of binoculars, and you can see why they are quickly becoming the observing instrument of choice. "Touring the Universe Through Binoculars" is a self-contained guide for amateur astronomers and novice sky-watchers. It includes a unique atlas providing listings of deep-sky objects visible with binoculars and also all you need to know about buying and using binoculars, as well as a section on homemade mounts.

Contents

Why Binoculars?; The Moon; The Planets; Minor Members of the Solar System; The Sun; Stellar Happenings; A Survey of the Night Sky; Appendices; Index.
