Reviews - What do customers think about National Audubon Society Field Guide to the Night Sky?

Book Review: National Audubon Society field guide to the night sky  Mar 24, 2008
The National Audubon Society Field Guide to the Night Sky is a good book to get you started in the field of astronomy. Alone the book offers a ton of information, but is not the clearest in its descriptions of several concepts. As a pocket reference this book cannot be beat. Filled with many many good pictures to help fuel your imagination and fervor towards astronomy, I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning the basics of this field of study.
Fallen from grace  Aug 26, 2006
I've used this book for years with happy results. I've often impressed friends with my knowledge of planetary positions in the night sky by using the "planetary longitude" table in the appendices.

However, this year marked the end of the usefullness of the planetary longitude table(which is something I use a lot). It only has information through 2005. Audubon should offer an update to this so I don't have to purchase the book again just to get the P.L. table.
Excellent Guide  Nov 28, 2005
If you're interested in studying the night sky by eye, this is an awesome guide. The explanations are clear, the charts are great, and the background material is interesting. It will tell you what you can see up there, how to find it, and when you'll be able to see it, which was exactly what I was looking for. This book has everything you need to appreciate your backyard view more fully.
'Out on the lawn I lie in bed...'  Dec 21, 2004
For those who remain spellbound by the canopy of night with all the beauty and mythology and mystery gazing at the stars brings to mind, this book is a godsend. Without requiring previous courses in astronomy and without spending hours cross referencing words to match constellations to match positions to match meanings, this book comfortably and beautifully offers maps and photographs, essays and information that make looking heavenward all the more exciting. The writing is accurate, updated, understandable to the novice, and makes a terrific companion to seeking answers and directions to the stars and the planets. A valuable aide to your appreciation of the universe! Grady Harp, December 2004
A Stargazer's Delight!  Apr 1, 2003
One of my favorite books on the bookshelf, simply because of its easy-to-read format, and information for both the amateur stargazer and serious astronomer. The book covers everything that the curiousity seeker is looking for, with an exhaustive selection of sky charts for each month, a detailed section featuring each constellation with its history and details, and an exciting tour of the solar system and its celestial denizens.
Plenty of information, and just the right amount of photographs, too. A handy guide for everyone curious about the world "up there"!
