As Editor of the Observer’s Handbook, I appreciate the kind review. More than 60 volunteers work on it each year, and the publication is over 100 years old. I confess it is a bit daunting for beginners. The RASC used to publish the Beginner’s Observing Guide, but that is now out of print. Look ahead to a new guide to the Explore the Universe Program, which is certainly more newbie-friendly!

In the meantime, don’t overlook the Feature Constellation article. I also direct readers to The Deep Sky, Near and Far. Check out Wide Field Wonders, excellent for binocular observers.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
