    Default Nebulae book



    I want to find an in-depth authoritative reference book on nebulae so I can know more about their composition, history, etc. beyond just how beautiful they look. Any recommendations? One I've found is "Observing Nebulae (The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series)" and wonder if anyone has an opinion on it. Thanks.

    Hi Geof. Here is a favorite of mine from Sue French. As a deep sky object book, it includes more than just the nebulae. Also, it is sorted into a monthly atlas of deep sky treats here,

    I hope this helps Geof, and the best of wishes on your observing adventures.

    Hello Geoffoto

    regarding the nebulae and open clusters there is a very good coverage in an unfortunately expensive book
    https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783211008515

    A classic resource on the web is http://galaxymap.org/
    I am specifically using the Sharpless nebulae section in the galaxy Map, http://galaxymap.org/cat/list/sharpless/1

    Best,
