Had good tips on finding the right binoculars for astronomy use. Half the book consists of star charts specifically for binoculars, but they were not well explained so I don't know how a newbie could use them. Bibliographies at end of each substantive chapter were helpful in case further info or explanation is needed. Published in 2007, so assessments of specific binocular models may be outdated. Overall this is a good resource.
