Exploring the Night Sky with Binoculars by Patrick Moore

Recommended Posts

I thought it appropriate to share this story. My wife and I recently visited friends in Mid Wales and they asked me to bring along my telescope. It happened to coincide with last month's full moon so not ideal. I noticed some good quality 10x binoculars on the side to which my friend said he has sometimes used them but did not know what to look for or where. A couple of days later we went with our wives to Hay on Wye and while perusing around a book shop I found an old, used hard copy of the above book for £5. Despite the temptation to keep it for myself, it was very well received as one of our parting gifts. I will quizz him next time. :)

Great story! I love the bookshops at Hay on Wye there seems to be a limitless supply of any title you can imagine! I hope the book gets your friend off to a good start in observing.
