Sky Publishing | 2007-05-01 | ISBN: 1931559325 | 184 pages | PDF (SCAN!!!)
If you like observing double stars, and you desire a list that will keep you busy for more than a lifetime, this book is it. It is a valuable reference every double star observer should have in his or her personal library.
The first 10-pages contain general practical observing information pertinent to every amateur, from beginning to seasoned observer. The next section - the heart of the book - runs from pages 11 - 168 (the rest of the book). This section is a very detailed & complete "Catalog" of Double Stars. No where, that I know of anyway, is there a book (list) of approximately 2100 double stars. The book gives great detail, organized first by constellation and then by RA within the constellation. Data such as coordinates, star name, Position Angle, stellar magnitudes, the "type" of double and observing comments are given for each Double Star.
