Nightwatch - A Practical Guide to Viewing the Universe, by renowned Canadian author Terence Dickinson.

Nightwatch is the standard reference for all amateur astronomers. Never before has a guide been written so ultra-simplified, without the usual jargon found in reference books. Gorgeous full-color photos appear throughout.

You will read about the known universe, the Milky Way Galaxy, Planets, The Moon and our closest star: The Sun, and more. Excellent beginners star maps (20 charts) compliment the simple seasonal maps of the sky, complete with descriptions of the most popular deep-sky objects.
