About the authors Gerald Rhemann, born in Vienna, became interested in astronomy when he was very young. His first telescope was a small Newtonian reflector, and with it he familiarized himself with what is where in the sky.

The chances are good that you now have or can borrow a pair of binoculars that will do very nicely. Thus this book should be useful even to owners of small richest-field telescopes.

This atlas plots practically every star visible with the naked eye plus hundreds of deep-sky objects. Tirion has also created 31 detailed finder charts, two of which are double-page spreads, plus a set of seasonal finder charts. Also included are 25 photographs most are wide field and 40 Tables. Not only does Binocular Astronomy help you locate objects but it explains what they are and how they fit into our understanding of the universe.

While there is great aesthetic beauty in the night sky, there is also the Science of Astronomy. Binocular Astronomy will show you why most experienced amateur astronomers think that binoculars should be the first optical instrument for the beginner and why they are of value to even seasoned observers.

The attention to detail in the observing information bears the hallmark of one who really knows his way around the sky. I would recommend it not so much as a general guide to binocular observing, but as a first-class deep-sky atlas both for observers with binoculars and those with small telescopes.

Australian Journal of Astronomy it is complete and well illustrated, with descriptions of hundreds of objects in the sky that will appeal to interested beginners and advanced observers of all ages. Serviss published Astronomy with an Opera-Glass, a little book celebrating the usefulness of modest, everyday optical aids. Crossen describes about interesting objects at some length, weaving in not just their visual appearance but often their astrophysical significance and observational history, including a lot of constellation lore.

In these respects the book shines. He is currently completing a book on constellation and star-name history. Nor is he afraid to get personal. These are supplemented throughout the text by many large, clear, more detailed finder charts by Tirion, including double-page maps to magnitude 7. These are also some useful wide-field finder photographs.

Being oriented towards readers with relatively modest glasses, Binocular Astronomy tells more about the fewer objects it covers. Craig Crossen has contributed articles and reviews to Astronomy magazine since and coauthored the book Sky Vistas. His interest in astronomy began when he was 13 years old and has included both binocular and telescope observing and formal graduate study in astrophysics.

During the past thirty years, he has authored or coauthored an unprecedented array of star atlases and finder charts. His major atlases include The Bright Star Atlas , a special version of which is included in this book, Sky Atlas Many consider him to be the greatest celestial cartographer of all time.
