Wiley Publications Book: Touring the Universe through Binoculars: A Complete Astronomer's Guidebook by Philip S. Harrington
Book: Touring the Universe through Binoculars: A Complete Astronomer's Guidebook by Philip S. Harrington
This comprehensive work, Touring the Universe through Binoculars, takes you on a personal tour of the universe using nothing more than a pair of binoculars. More comprehensive than any book currently available, it starts with Earth's nearest neighbor, the moon, and then goes on to explore each planet in the solar system, asteroids, meteors, comets and the sun.
Following this, the reader is whisked away into deep space to explore celestial bodies including stars that are known and many sights less familiar. The final chapter includes a detailed atlas of deep-sky objects visible through binoculars.
The appendices include guidance on how to buy, care for and maintain astronomical binoculars, tips and hints on using them, and detailed information on several home-made binocular mounts.
