Synopsis

Philip's Stargazing With Mark Thompson provides the perfect introduction to the fascinating hobby of astronomy for beginners, written by TV's favourite astronomer.

With 30 years' experience in observational astronomy and helping hundreds of newcomers get started in their new hobby, Mark Thompson takes everything he has learned and leads his readers skilfully through their early stargazing experiences in this brand-new book - Philip's Stargazing With Mark Thompson. He provides a wealth of knowledge, with valuable hints and tips to aid beginners in their first steps in astronomy. Not only does Mark demonstrate great observational techniques and how to find the brighter objects in the sky, but he guides his readers through the important steps of choosing and using a telescope.

This is a book that will not only act as a guide to the novice astronomer but, by drawing on Mark's own experiences, will be a companion to share in the wonders of the night sky.
