    Default Awesome Amateur Astronomy Guide Book





    For all who is interested in amateur astronomy this is a great guide for first timers. Its called The Cambridge Encyclopedia Of Amateur Astronomy by Michael E. Bakich. Its a great book filled with information that i am still reading on since i got it in December. This guy explains everything well. I got it from chapters but i forget the price of the book but i dont think it was over 20$

    Great book

    I just now ordered this book from Barnes & Noble in their used book section. I got mine for under $ 5.00. All the others listed were from $8.00 on up to $ 33.00 & beyond.
