Binocular Astronomy
Binocular Astronomy and a pair of binoculars are all you need to begin observing the night sky — stars, open and globular clusters, bright and dark nebulae, galaxies, and much more. The binoculars need not be expensive! The majority of the objects described in this book were viewed by the author using a pair of $40 binoculars he purchased from Sears & Roebuck in 1978. The chances are good that you now have or can borrow a pair of binoculars that will do very nicely.

Binocular Highlights
Exploring the wonders of the cosmos doesn't require expensive and complicated equipment -- the moons of Jupiter, breathtaking nebulae, and distant galaxies are all visible through binoculars. Binocular Highlights is a tour of 96 different celestial sights from softly glowing clouds of gas and dust to unusual stars, clumps of stars, and vast star cities (galaxies) -- all visible in binoculars. Each object is plotted on a detailed, easy-to-use star map, and most of these sights can be found even in a light-polluted sky. Also included are four seasonal all-sky charts that help locate each highlight.

Touring the Universe Through Binoculars
This comprehensive work takes you on a personal tour of the universe using nothing more than a pair of binoculars. More comprehensive than any book currently available, it starts with Earth's nearest neighbor, the moon, and then goes on to explore each planet in the solar system, asteroids, meteors, comets and the sun. Following this, the reader is whisked away into deep space to explore celestial bodies including stars that are known and many sights less familiar. The final chapter includes a detailed atlas of deep-sky objects visible through binoculars. The appendices include guidance on how to buy, care for and maintain astronomical binoculars, tips and hints on using them, and detailed information on several home-made binocular mounts.
