from down under this is it! With hundreds of full colour star charts and maps
of the Moon and planets of our solar system, this book will ensure you

the Anglo-Australian Observatory, both the authors are well established
Australian amateur astronomers both as writers and in practical
astrophography and science achievements.
Steve Massey is one of Australia's most prolific popular authors on
astronomy including books published overseas and five other titles here
Steve Quirk is a renowned veteran of astrophotography and holds a deep
interest in those objects rarely photographed by others yet also quite
accessible to the average observer.

understand, observe and even photograph the night sky, including the
stars, galaxies, nebulae, Sun, Moon, asteroids, comets and planets from
the back yard, this book is your essential guide and reference to the
