Basic Steps in Astronomy by John Boulton (£9.50)Publisher: Blandford Press — 1979Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0713710128]Condition: Very Good. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs, diagrams & charts. From the cover: “Astronomy is a science in which the amateur can contribute greatly to the knowledge of the subject. Constant observation of the heavens is the key to the accumulation of new data and the formulation of new theories about the nature and the origin of the Universe.

Basic Steps in Astronomy is the beginner’s guide to the subject. It aims to encourage those already interested in it and introduce them to the equipment and the techniques that will turn a reading knowledge into a practical hobby.

After an introductory history of the subject the book describes the equipment that a beginner can buy or build. It then goes on to discuss the way in which various objects can be located on the celestial sphere. The second half of the book acts as a guide to what can be seen — the moon and planets, the stars, and the galaxies. Observations from both the southern and northern hemispheres are dealt with and there are 4 pages of full colour and over 50 black and white illustrations.”
