Atlas of the Southen Night Sky

Atlas of the Southern Night Sky

By Steve Massey & Steve Quirk

Published by New Holland

$49.99, paperback

Specifically presented for Southern Hemisphere locations and now in paperback for the first time, this comprehensive atlas allows both amateur and more skilled astronomers to unlock the wonder of the cosmos.

It’s packed with useful information, including details of telescope designs and other star gazing accessories and instructions on how to observe the sun and the planets.

Beautifully illustrated and with hundreds of full colour star charts and maps of the moon and planets of our solar system, it will ensure you get the most out of a pair of binoculars or a small telescope from suburban backyards and dark country sky locations.

Steve Massey is one of Australia’s most prolific and popular authors on astronomy, with a number of books published internationally.
Steve Quirk is a renowned veteran of astrophotography and holds a deep interest in those objects rarely photographed by others yet also quite accessible to the average observer.
