The titles are as follows:
An Astronomical Year. Written for everyone with an interest in astronomy, it contains information on hundreds of night sky events throughout the year. It was designed for astronomers of all levels and includes details of the lunar phases and eclipses, as well as conjunctions, oppositions, magnitude and apparent diameter changes for the planets and major asteroids. (2015 and 2016 editions are available although the 2016 editions cater specifically for North America and the UK. Available in both Kindle and paperback formats.)
2016: The Night Sky Sights is specifically designed for absolute beginners and casual stargazers without a telescope. The guide highlights over 100 astronomical events in 2016 – all of them visible with just your eyes – and showcases events visible in both the evening and pre-dawn sky as well as those you can see throughout the night. (North American and UK versions available in both Kindle and paperback formats.)
The Astronomical Almanac provides details of thousands of astronomical events for the next five years. Designed for more experienced astronomers, this the guide includes almost daily data and information on the Moon and planets, as well as Pluto, Ceres, Pallas, Juno and Vesta. (Available for 2015-2019 and 2016-2020 and written for users worldwide. Both Kindle and paperback formats are available.)
The Deep Sky Observer’s Guide offers you the night sky at your fingertips. As an amateur astronomer, you want to know what’s up tonight and you don’t always have the time to plan ahead. Whether you use a GoTo or prefer to star hop, no matter where you live in the world and no matter what time of year or night, the guide can provide an immediate solution. Take it outside and let the guide suggest any one of over 1,300 deep sky objects, all visible with a small telescope and many accessible via binoculars. (Written for users worldwide and available as a paperback in the US, Canada and the United Kingdom.)
The Amateur Astronomer’s Notebook is the perfect way to log your observations of the Moon, stars, planets and deep sky objects. It is available as both a full-size 8.5” by 11” journal and also as a 5” by 8” pocket notebook.
