    Hi Ash!

    Sir Patrick Moore's book should be a good one.

    "Turn Left At Orion" is often recommended as well. It's a good read with charts and sketches and imagery.

    Hi Ash,

    A book I like for beginners is "The Stars a New Way to See Them" by H.A.Rey. It's not expensive, and available on Amazon.
