Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Described by the Journal of the British Astronomical Association as 'the best introduction to astronomy', this classic reference work was first published in 1970. The sixth edition is illustrated with hundreds of images and covers the history of astronomy and space exploration; the solar system; the sun; stars in general; and the structure of galaxies and the universe. For the practical astronomer there are maps of the moon, the whole sky and the constellations, seasonal charts and advice on equipment and technique.
