Need some books


Recommended Posts


I learned messier objects by reading a book written by a local astronomer and it was very helpful. 

Do you'll know any more books on observation? H400, ic, ngc, Caldwell etc. 

I really need a book as using Mobile phones in dark sites makes my eyes pain.

Hi I have an old copy of "Observing Handbook and Catalogue of Deep-Sky Objects" by Lunginbuhl & Skiff which has 2000 objects. I no longer use it so it yours for the postage if you would like it. Just PM me your address. No problem if you don't want it. 

Regards Andrew

The book usually recommended on this site for learning your way around the night sky is Turn Left at Orion. It is good but to be honest I have found The Illustrated Guide to Astronomical Wonders to be even more useful.
