The Year Round Messier Marathon Field Guide
Each year, many amateur astronomers do the "Messier Marathon" -- a mad dash to observe all 109 Messier objects in a single moonless night in late March or early April. Amateur astronomer Pennington helps you train for the race by learning bright star and constellation "finders" that will help you locate each object. Tips for rapid telescope pointing and field identification and a variety of maps, drawings, and descriptions are included. The Messier Marathon is a great way to test your sky knowledge -- and this book is your personal trainer!
