    Default Discover the stars by Richard Berry



    Well when I bought my Orion XT8i, I bought the beginners kit and it came this book, I have to say the book is well written(format) and has a lot of info. But (there's always a but lol) it is not very good I feel for beginners imo. I read through it, and I could've gotten a star chart for diffrent months and that would've been the same info from book. Plus most of the explanations on astronomy terms and measurements is very thin. I think I have learned more about these things here on the forums than from this book. So overall a good book for charts of the diffrent months and closeups of specific constellations, but otherwise a pass imo.
