If you are planning to become a casual night sky watcher this book is a must. But if you are a regular stargazer you must have this little book too. A piece of artwork by itself, there is no much reading in it but there is a lot to look at. Incredibly useful star charts! Easy to use at night or during the day to prepare the observations. It does not matter if you live in the southern or the northern hemisphere, this book will serve you well. Unless you have a relatively large telescope, anything...more

This is a small reference for astronomy lovers, in a handy size able to fit into a large pocket. It covers all stars down to 7.6 magnitude, which means it's great for small telescopes and binoculars, but readers will find it much more useful after learning the constellations. The book is divided into many sections, each of which is considerably smaller than the night sky.

it's not optimized for telescopes and i didn't find if comfortable for binoculars either.my experience!

As a beginner I think its a great sky atlas. Don't see reason to use any other more detailed one.
