Offering complete advice from the ground up, Stargazing is the perfect manual for beginners to astronomy - introducing the world of telescopes, planets, stars, dark skies and celestial maps.

Discover how to tackle light pollution, how to stargaze with just your eyes, and what equipment is best for beginners.

Astronomy experts Radmila Topalovic and Tom Kerss explain the best ways to plan your stargazing experience and the key things to look out for on specific dates throughout the year.

With seasonal star charts, constellation charts and facts about our Solar System, Stargazing is packed of useful information and guidance for both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
