Bring astronomy down from the mountaintops and into the backyard with this one-stop stargazing manual from Sir Patrick Moore and Pete Lawrence, stars of the BBC's The Sky at Night. These days, affordable telescopes, cameras, and software make it easy for anyone to explore the heavens—and capture breathtaking images. Here is all the information amateur astronomers need to proceed, including a month-by-month sky guide, a large wall poster of all the constellations visible from Earth, and a detailed map of the Moon compiled by Moore, who has advised NASA on lunar cartography.
