Collects some of the author's "Deep-Sky Wonders" columns, arranged by season and month, providing one hundred in-depth tours of the nighttime sky.
Sue French has been an avid deep-sky observer for 32 years and has worked as a planetarium educator for 18 years. She sets up her telescope in her backyard but travels regularly to enjoy the deep sky from different vantage points.
A very good guide by an experienced observer and planetarium teacher. Although the book can be used as a reference for beginners, its primary audience is likely to be midlevel and advanced observers. Recommended for all readers who want to take a look at the night sky.--Jack W. Weigel, Ann Arbor, MI"Library Journal" (02/01/2012)
