Format: Hardcover-spiral
I purchased this book as recommended by the retailer who sold my telescope to me. I paid $35 and have not regretted it. Very simple and straight forward. In the months since, I've purchased several other books on the subject and this is still the one I reference most. The star charts in the back are great, just detailed enough to get you around, but not so much that you get lost. Included are sections to help purchase a scope and information on northern and southern hemisphere skies (although the book was written in the northern and it shows). Very much worth the money on amazon (once again see my comment above -$35, no regrets!), and the book is built to last. This is the best first astronomy book I could've asked for. The sequel is "The backyard astronomer's guide" which takes the foundations built in this book and expands on them, also highly rated.

Five stars seems an exaggeration whenever I see it in the ratings, but this is one book I emphatically would impress them upon!

I had the pleasure of meeting a Sidewalk Astronomer and viewing the Moon through his telescope. It was awesome! I explained I had bought a telescope quite a few years ago, but only encountered frustration. He explained tgatvtge book Night Watch was like an astronomer's bible especially for those who want to get started as it explains numerous facts associated with astronomy and star gazing, including tips on purchasing telescopes and binoculars for viewing the night sky. I am happy that I followed his advice, the book is well written and understandable and has renewed my interest in amateur astronomy. I would most ddfinitely recommend this book to others.

Bought this for my hard-to-please husband and he loves it! He actually has been keeping it on our dining table for several weeks and he refers to it often. Great purchase.

I have always wanted to start astronomy as a hobby and finally decided to get started. This book is perfect beginners book. Doesn't confuse you with jargon and is simplicity at its best!

Once you start reading you cannot stop and I will be definitely be purchasing other books by Terence Dickinson.
