There's more than enough info on stargazing here for the hobbyist to get started. It's astronomy 101 crammed into a field guide.

The middle portion has detailed diagrams of each region of the sky, followed by a number of stunning color photographs—many from the Hubble telescope. ( )

this book is fantastic for anyone who likes to star-gaze. it's compact enough to take anywhere, and tells you exactly what you're looking at based on where in the world you are, and what time of year it is. maybe not the book for the professional astronomer, but for campers, backpackers, and those who just like to look upwards now and then, there couldn't be a better guide to the stars.

The perfect companion volume for Hale-Bopp watchers, this guide explores the fabulous mysteries above, from planets in our solar system to the constellations in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres, stars, galaxies (including the Milky Way), nebulae, astronomical bodies, objects, phenomena, and -- yes -- comets. Night Sky provides a concise guided tour of the heavens with 48 monthly sky charts of the northern sky and 88 constellation charts, each offering a detailed map of individual constellations. Essays on the universe, the solar system, and constellations introduce the reader to the wonders of the sky.
