John A. Read covers everything needed to identify constellations, planets, stars, galaxies, nebulae and more. Inquisitive stargazers will find planet hunting and star hopping easy with clearly plotted routes and images of the sky both as seen by the naked eye and detailed views from a telescope.

Many fascinating cosmic objects can be easily spotted with the help of this book including beautiful Cassiopeia, regal Leo, the plentiful Kemble's Cascade, the explosive Crab Nebula, the rings of Saturn — even the moon!

This easy to read, fully illustrated reference book will enrich every young person's experience of the skies above.

JOHN A. READ volunteered at hundreds of stargazing events as a member of the Mount Diablo Astronomical Society in California, teaching people of all ages how to use a telescope and find objects in the sky. A student of astrophysics at Saint Mary's University, John now volunteers at the Burke-Gaffney Observatory and with the Halifax Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. He lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
