Description

The first three editions of NightWatch sold more than 600,000 copies, making it the top-selling stargazing guide in the world for the last 20 years. The key feature of this classic title is the section of star charts that are cherished by backyard astronomers everywhere. Each new edition has outsold the previous one because of thorough revisions and additional new material. 

 

NightWatch has been acclaimed as the best general interest introduction to astronomy. The fourth edition has improvements over the 3rd edition in every chapter, including:

 

  • The famous charts, ideal for stargazers using a small telescope or binoculars
  • A complete update of the equipment section, including computerized telescopes
  • An enlarged photography section, including how-to instructions for using the new generation of digital cameras for astronomical photography, both with and without a telescope
  • The tables of future solar and lunar eclipses, planetary conjunctions and planet locations, updated through 2018.

 

This edition includes for the first time star charts for use in the southern hemisphere. There are also dozens of new photographs throughout the book that show the latest thrilling discoveries made by current space observatories and probes.

 

Terence Dickinson is the best-selling author of 13 other astronomy books, including Backyard Astronomer's Guide and The Universe and Beyond. He has received many national and international science awards, including the New York Academy of Science Book of the Year Award.

                Haven't really had a good chance to go through it. But I took a look at it & I'm sure that I will pleased with it; from what I've seen so far just thombing thru it. The weather here has been louisy & I haven't even had a chance to play with my new telescope; but I'm sure I'll be happy with both. Have been real happy with your service. Thank you!

                    Received my order very quickly & in good shape. Hayneedle rules! Book is very high quality, but I was a little disappointed that there were not more "how to" and chart pages. Overall though a very nice book for the price.

                          Plan to give this as a gift to my granddaughter who is interested in getting a telescope. Will use this as a preview until she is ready to move up to telescopes. I learned a lot about binoculars and telescopes in the first 20 minutes of reading. Easy to understand and the pictures/photos are great.

                                    This is a great read for any amateur astronomer. It is written like a conversation with an old friend, not a technical manual. Terence's love for astronomy is contagious, and he gets you excited to get outside and start looking at the sky. It is an intelligent read, but he makes no assumptions about your knowledge level. The spiral binding makes it easy to have out with you on a night of observing. A great book!
