An indispensable tool for the amateur astronomer!

This kit will help you learn everything a beginning stargazer needs to know. Use the rotating planisphere to figure out which stars are currently visible, and the 256-page star guide to learn more about each celestial body. Key facts are presented in an easy-to-understand format, and sidebars offer fun trivia and illuminating anecdotes. From star maps that feature the dominant constellations at any given time of the year to a handy notebook for recording your observations, you’ll be prepared for planetary enlightenment as the moon rises!

Robin Kerrod is a writer and editor, specializing in astronomy. His published works include The Sky at Night, The Way the Universe Works, and many of the sky charts used in schools. He is a Fellow of Britain's Royal Astronomical Society and a former winner of the COPUS (Committee on the Public Understanding of Science) Junior Science Book Prize.

Tom Jackson has been a writer for more than 20 years. He has written more than 100 books and contributed to many more, covering everything from axolotls to zoroastrianism. His specialties are natural history, technology and all things scientific. Tom studied zoology at Bristol University and has had spells working in zoos and as a conservationist. He’s mucked out polar bears and fed the penguins, planted trees in Somerset, surveyed Vietnamese jungle and rescued wildlife from drought in Africa. Writing jobs have also taken him to the Galápagos Islands, the Amazon rain forest, the coral reefs of Indonesia and the Sahara Desert.
