Journey to the stars from your own backyard with your telescope and the Orion Telescope Observer's Guide!

Author Richard J. Bartlett leads you on a detailed tour of the night sky as he describes over 60 fascinating astronomical objects that can easily be seen with a small telescope. This book will guide you to amazing cosmic phenomena including planetary, emission and reflection nebulas; double and multiple stars; open and globular star clusters, the Andromeda Galaxy, and more. With a full page of information dedicated to each interesting object, the Orion Telescope Observer's Guide will not only help you find and observe these objects, it also describes what you're seeing so you can appreciate your stargazing experiences to the fullest. A map and finder scope view of each object is included, as are depictions of what you can expect to see in the telescope eyepiece.

This thorough guide to observing the night sky also includes seasonal star charts showing which constellations will be visible throughout the year, information on the different types of celestial objects you'll see in a telescope, vital tips and tricks to help you stargaze like a pro, a glossary of common astronomical terms and an info-packed appendix, plus a series of blank observation logs for you to record your observations.

While written with the beginner in mind, the Orion Telescope Observer's Guide is also a must-have guide for more experienced amateur astronomers who want to learn more about observing the many wonders of the night sky with a telescope.
