New Spiral Bound edition of Turn Left at Orion

Recommended Posts

Was just to say that I have just got a new copy of Turn Left at Orion which has just been updated to it's Fourth edition and now comes as a large format spiral bound softcover which is really good for using in the field, my original fell apart last year after years of use!

A classic book, :p everyone should have a copy

Just ordered a copy from Amazon and rxed an email saying it will be here in about 2 days, woohoo! So it seems they do have some left!!

I do have the hardback version and use it a lot tbh, so this new spiral bound one will be even better to use!!

Just ordered mine from BookDepository, Cheaper and faster. :p

Why would you want to pay more when that money saved could go into a "filter fund" jar ;)

Ordered it! Not missing out - my local Waterstone's had a paperback 3rd edition on the shelf but I remembered a new one was due so held back. Glad I did...

Agree Book Depositary is an excellent site. I'm slightly (and cleverly on their part) bound to Amazon as I pay the yearly fee for Prime delivery. I need the gratification of next day delivery - when in stock in this case.:p

I guess I will be 2 GBP closer to a new filter by buying from BD ;)

MarineBLU28 congratulations on getting hold of your copy, you must be one of the first. In talking with Cambridge Press, they indicated that amongst the new changes in this 4th edition, there was supposed to be a special section addressed to dobsonian users, which is in recognition of the increase in aperture that new people with these scopes are now starting out with. Is there anything in the contents pages that verifies this new section?

When they give the objects about DSO like M42 etc, it shows you what the object would look like through a Dobsonian which I believe is 10" according to the book.

Rxed my copy this morning too via Amazon Prime, which im on a trial with. Very pleased with the updates and the 'easier to use at the scope spirals'!

Yeah, I know I could've saved a couple of quid Smeg, your'e right about that, but I don't mind at the moment, he he. Anyway I already have enough filters that I don't seem to use that much, lol.

Does the book still say that you should never clean eyepieces?

- I've been hoping they've seen sense and edited that bit out...
