1. I am often asked for a favorite book to start learning about stars and star watching.
It would be “ Nightwatch” by Terence Dickinson. The star charts are excellent and easy to follow. The background information is interesting (even to my wife who says she still thinks of stars as pin-holes punched through black construction paper)
2. I am trying to figure out how to provide links to my favorite books on Amazon. Let me know how this works for you!
Now here is a link to it if you like.
