It also gives informative advice about suitable accessories, such as eyepieces and filters, plus suggestions for astrophotography using cameras, CCDs and webcams. The guidance given is appropriate for all observing conditions.The book also includes a glossary of technical terms and an index, making it even easier for the beginner to use and understand.
