Synopses & Reviews
A unique and necessary reference for amateurs and professionals alike, with comprehensive coverage of the thousands of celestial objects outside our solar system—but within the range of two- to twelve-inch telescopes. The objects are grouped according to the constellations in which they appear, and their definitions feature names, celestial coordinates, classification, and a full physical description, along with hundreds of charts, photographs, and other visual aids. These, together with a star atlas, will assist stargazers at every level of experience in finding and identifying celestial objects. This volume, Volume III of the three-volume set, completes the alphabetical list of constellations, from Pavo to Vulpecula, and includes an index. Also available are Volume I, an introduction and the beginning of the list of constellations, from Andromeda to Cetus; and Volume II, consisting of entries from Chameleon to Orion. 1977 ed.
