Celestial Sites, Celestial Splendors presents us with a beautiful and fascinating panorama of more than a hundred carefully chosen astronomical objects - from near-by planets, meteors and comets, to distant stars, galaxies and nebulae - and provides a comprehensive and practical guide to viewing them. Each object's location, discovery and optimal observation times are discussed, along with advice on the best techniques for observing each one. We are shown how these splendors of the sky can be seen with simple instruments, such as binoculars or a small telescope, and sometimes even with the naked eye. The book also gives advice on the best choice of accessories to use with amateur telescopes and contains photographs illustrating how each object appears when seen through such apparatus, along with excellent pictures from large space telescopes. Its accessible style will appeal to all amateur astronomers and anyone interested in the night sky.
