Unless you have an 8" or larger telescope you won't be able to see a majority of the "Wonders" in this book. I'll keep it as a reference for that time when I might buy a larger than 4" refractor which I now use for imaging.

Amazon removed all color from the e-edition, although it misleadingly shows color in the preview of the book.
Yes, I know, you cannot see color on the kindle, but you can see color using the kindle reader in iphone, ipad and PC.
The value of the ebook is diminished greatly. Shame!
I gave four stars because I do not want to punish the excellent content and pictures.
It is zero stars for the e edition.

I bought it for the pictures. I have a telescope and take astrophotos and figured I would be able to see some interesting images to shoot myself. Surprised that many of the 1001 "wonders" do not appear in photos. The book is not bad, just not what I thought it would be.

Its a great book in all aspects. I'll be using it to set up my celestial itineraries when ever I go out observing. The index in the back is handy for looking up objects by name and getting the NGC,IC,etc. numbers. Well worth the price.

fantastic guide and well written. I saw an article he wrote in Astronomy magazine and found it to be so exciting I ordered the book. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition! I'll have it at my side when I'm am observing the sky with my telescope.

Good reference.

The book provides a good description and insight of the 1001 objects it describes. It is organised by months which helps in doing some stargazing planning and viewing sequences. Some object summaries are short, but generaly go strait to the point, what makes it a great book to better know objects and their important features/characteristics. Nevertheless, I think the book misses important images - there are splendid named objects with no picture on the side, and as such I rank it 4/4.5
Clear Skies,

How could I possibly know whether this book is worth buying when the "look inside" pages show me next to nothing??
