But when you are out ther This is a brand new title for Philips bestselling astronomy list following the success of Philips Guide to Stargazing with a Telescope. Binoculars provide a great start in astronomy. Compared with telescopes, they are comparatively cheap and easy to use, they are light and compact, and can be used for many other activities such as bird-watching. But when you are out there on a starry night, how do you know what to look at? Where are the best objects to observe through binoculars? Just how much can you see, and what are the tips and tricks of getting the most out of them? Philips Stargazing with Binoculars reveals what to expect from a pair of binoculars and how to choose the right ones if you are buying for the first time, or up-grading. It gives straightforward explanations of how they work, and how to progress from first-time user to hobby observer. It gives practical help for setting up and using any binoculars, and provides lists of objects to look at with different sizes of binoculars, from both town and country, including the Sun, Moon, planets, comets, asteroids, stars, clusters, variable stars, double stars, novae, nebulae and galaxies. Aimed principally at newcomers to astronomy of all ages, who would like to begin observing for themselves, and perhaps make contact with other amateur observers, Philips Stargazing with Binoculars describes a wide range of binoculars that are internationally available, with examples of objects to observe taken from both northern and southern hemispheres. The guidance given is appropriate for all observing conditions. This brand new title includes a glossary of technical terms and an index, making it even easier for the beginner to use and understand. It is a practical guide to binoculars and how to achieve the best results. It is fully updated to include the latest equipment on the market. It is full colour throughout. What if... boxes suggest simple solutions to difficulties. There are specially commissioned step-by-step illustrations, and easy-to-use star maps covering the whole sky.
