David Chandler has taught astronomy, physics, and mathematics at the high school and college levels since the early 1970's and is an active amateur astronomer. He has built telescopes ranging from 6 inches to 25 inches diameter and has helped found the Pomona Valley Amateur Astronomers and the Tule River Amateur Astronomers. When I read David Chandlers book I thought that it was more than what I was going to put together. It is excellent! It should be easy for older kids to read and understand and yet not in any way too childish for their parents.

Exploring the Night Sky with Binoculars was written to be a companion handbook for The Night Sky Planisphere, serving as a general introduction to observational astronomy. It covers both what can be seen in the sky and the significance of what is seen. It is beautifully illustrated with specially commissioned artwork by Don Davis, one of the leading space artists today. Besides being a starter book for beginners, it is used in a number of colleges as a textbook supplement for the first-week's reading assignment!

It goes on to cover binocular selection - very briefly - (if you don't have a pair), proper use, and how to get started (the book was accompanied by a star dial which I've lost) and a list of lunar craters to seek out, a simple lesson on Cosmic scale to help one imagine our relationship to the immensity of it. all in terms we're familiar with.

Observing Guides Chandler, David. Exploring the Night Sky with Binoculars. I found Exploring the Night Sky with Binoculars by Patrick Moore a great book to start of with, also a planisphere and small red light torch. Springfield, CA: David Chandler C. 2005). Cherrington, Ernest . Jr. Exploring the Moon Through Binoculars and Small Telescopes. New York: Dover Publications, 1969, 1984). Crossen, Craig and Wil Tirion.

The virtue of this little book is that it focuses exclusively on what ordinary observers with ordinary telescopes or binoculars observing in ordinary settings under ordinary skies can actually SEE with their modest instruments under a ark dome. In other words, real world observing targets for real world people.

This was a disappointing little pamphlet (one can hardly call it a book at only 49 pages) that is a waste of money. I've discovered that it is often found in a binocular "packages" where it comes free along with a night sky dial for locating stars and the binoculars themselves. By the way, a guide dial such as Guide to the Stars is extremely useful tool to any astronomer. Back to this pamphlet, I think it is better suited to children, if that... BUT if you're TRUELY interested in binocular astronomy get a copy of Binocular Highlights: 99 Celestial Sights for Binocular Users (Sky & Telescope Stargazing) by Gary Seronik. Though quite a bit more, Binocular Highlights is by FAR amore useful book than Exploring The Night Sky could ever be. I will be returning "Exploring" to Amazon. I should have know better than to order a book that Amazon does not have a "look inside" option.

This booklet (pamphlet) is something one would expect to find included with binoculars rated for star gazing. The information included is interesting, but very sparce, top-level and generic - and expensive considering what is contained in the booklet (it's about 1/8" thick). Worth get only if you can find it (cheap) used at a garage sale.

This is as poor a book of this type as I have ever seen. I only got because it was for a class I'm taking. A much better book is Binocular Highlights/ Seronick. This cost about 3x more but is worth it.

For the price, this is a very slim offering. Some nice information, great illustrations, but it's barely a pamphlet. And it spends a good amount of its ink telling us how we really should buy the author's planisphere. This little 'book' should have been included with the plainisphere. That would have made a nice package -- one I'd gladly have paid for. As it is, I just feel ripped off.

If you own NightWatch: A Practical Guide to Viewing the Universe, save your money. Dicknson's book has great star charts, and they point out which objects make good binocular subjects.

A disappointment.

We own [...] and we have been contemplating writing a book to leave with our customers that would give a general overview of the Night Sky to help familiarize them with it. When I read David Chandlers book I thought that it was more than what I was going to put together.
It is excellent! It should be easy for older kids to read and understand and yet not in any way too childish for their parents.
It explains so many things for people, in plain English, who have caught the bug to learn about the Night Sky around them or for beginning astronomers.
Most excellent! My customers will be getting this book.
