There is nowhere better to observe the Milky Way and other astronomical phenomena than Australia, and The Australian Guide to Stargazing is the ideal companion to exploring the fascinating world of the night sky using the naked eye, binoculars and telescopes. Drawing on incredible scientific discoveries, it teaches the novice in clear and simple terms the basics of stargazing in the Southern Hemisphere - how to find and observe planets, lunar features, eclipses, meteors, constellations, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies.

This book also features:

- explanatory diagrams, photographs and detailed eyepiece drawings of objects as seen in amateur telescopes
- star maps and an explanation of astronomical terms
- advice on choosing astronomical equipment and making the best use of your eyesight - tips on reducing light pollution

Packed with mind-bending facts, The Australian Guide to Stargazing is the ultimate reference manual for novice stargazers, and ideal navigational tool for anyone who wants to time-view up to millions of years in the past and explore the greatest of all unknowns - the workings of the universe.
