About this item

Revised Fourth Edition: updated for use through 2025.

The first three editions of NightWatch sold more than 600, 000 copies, making it the top-selling stargazing guide in the world for the last 20 years. The key feature of this classic title is the section of star charts that are cherished by backyard astronomers everywhere. Each new edition has outsold the previous one because of thorough revisions and additional new material.

NightWatch has been acclaimed as the best general interest introduction to astronomy. The fourth edition has improvements over the 3rd edition in every chapter, including:

  • The famous charts, ideal for stargazers using a small telescope or binoculars
  • A complete update of the equipment section, including computerized telescopes
  • An enlarged photography section, including how-to instructions for using the new generation of digital cameras for astronomical photography, both with and without a telescope
  • The tables of future solar and lunar eclipses, planetary conjunctions and planet locations, updated through 2025.

This edition includes star charts for use in the southern hemisphere. There are also dozens of new photographs throughout the book that show the latest thrilling discoveries made by current space observatories and probes.

Customer review by RickTv

5.0 stars by RickTv

Growing up, I had subscriptions to Astronomy, Sky and Telescope, etc. I have several books on Astronomy. I found this book when it first came out. I could not put this book down, once I started reading it! I still have the book, and reference it often. The author does an excellent job of helping the reader understand the enormity of the universe, and inspires you to the awe. For parents wanting to help children understand what can be seen by the naked eye from your own backyard, to those that want to understand, and learn what is known about our universe, this book really hits those marks, and more. I highly recommend this book, as well as every book written by Terence Dickens!
