Product description

Look at the sky and get to know the planets, stars and constellations . Whether with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.

With this book you will get to know the starry sky. Gradually dive deeper and deeper into space. First you will find out what our seasons have to do with the stars. Then you will learn to recognize the constellations with certainty. You tinker a star map and your own red light lamp and travel to the planets.

Later it goes into the deep sky, to the deep sky objects: With binoculars or a telescope you will find star clusters and observe the Andromeda galaxy at a distance of 2.5 million light years.

Ideally suited for children and young people aged 10 and over.

Author Marcus Schenk has been fascinated by the stars since he visited a planetarium when he was 15. He is a founding member of the Buchloe public observatory in Bavarian Swabia and was also involved in children and youth work there. He has also turned his hobby into a profession: He works as a copywriter and content producer for a large Astro retailer.

Press comment:

"...The practically oriented volume contains many explanations and instructions for observing the starry sky and getting to know it better. ... A lot of practical and child-friendly tips for equipment, accessories, drawing, handicrafts, application of the technique ... make up the volume a useful guide in celestial observation. ..."
