Discovering Deep Sky Objects

Discovering Astronomy Home
Discovering Deep Sky Objects helps you to find and learn about over 600 carefully selected deep sky objects visible to amateur observers. The book covers star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, variables, and fiercely red carbon stars. The entire Messier and Caldwell catalogs are included and 386 objects have dedicated descriptions and finding instructions. Color overview charts tailored to light polluted skies show the general position of the objects, while generously proportioned detail charts show the precise star patterns around the objects themselves, enabling an observer to locate them through a finder scope.
You can support the development of this book and other books in the series by purchasing a handy printed copy of this PDF. The star charts are optimised for use with a red light torch.
