I’m very pleased and proud to announce the publication of my latest book, Easy Things to See With a Small Telescope: A Beginner’s Guide to Over 60 Easy-to-Find Deep Sky Objects. To celebrate this, I’m making the Kindle version available for free this weekend, Saturday December 12th to Monday December 14th and for a limited time only, you can get the paperback for half price. (Normally retails for $19.99 in the US and £14.99 in the UK)

Specifically written with the beginner in mind, this book highlights over sixty objects easily found and observed in the night sky. Objects such as:

* Stunning multiple stars
* Star clusters
* Nebulae
* And the Andromeda Galaxy!

Each object has its own page which includes a map, a view of the area through your finderscope and a depiction of the object through the eyepiece.

There’s also a realistic description of every object based upon the author’s own notes written over years of observations.

Additionally, there are useful tips and tricks designed to make your start in astronomy easier and pages to record your observations.

If you’re new to astronomy and own a small telescope, this book is an invaluable introduction to the night sky.

(If you’re not able to download the Kindle copy or would like a PDF copy, please feel free to email me at astronomywriter@gmail.com. As always, I don’t gather email addresses and won’t share yours with anyone else.)
