First Book for a New Star Watcher

I’ll be really honest with you, the purpose of this post is two fold:

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.
