In the movement of celestial objects within our own solar system, there is much that can be observed without the aid of a powerful telescope; the phases and transits of the moon and planets can be followed with the naked eye, and binoculars will reveal the moons of Jupiter or the terrain of the lunar surface. This detailed introduction gives advice on where to look and what to look for, and includes information on viewing comets, meteors and eclipses.
