Stargazing with Binoculars

couverture Le Ciel aux jumelles

Simpler and more affordable than a telescope, binoculars are ideal for familiarizing yourself with the sky and starting to explore it. Craters of the Moon, star clusters, nebulae, comets, and even some distant galaxies, all of this can be discovered with a good guide and simple binoculars!
After an introductory chapter on the starry sky and observation equipment, this practical guide offers 35 observation sheets with detailed location maps and clear explanations. The observations are classified by season of visibility and level of difficulty. They are achievable with the majority of binoculars on the market, from any country in the northern hemisphere.

A simple, practical and inspiring guide!
