Good news for all urbanites: You do not necessarily have to drive out into the country to observe stars. In 26 sky tours (between 15 to 30 minutes each), this star guide presents you the most beautiful objects to look at in the city night sky. Realistic star maps depict stars and constellations, clusters and nebulae, which can be seen with the naked eye or binoculars despite city lights. In addition, the book contains detailed descriptions of the moon and other planets – the characteristic object in skies in every part of the world. In this way, even urbanites are able to observe the stars from their cozy homes. Klaus M. Schittenhelm is an experienced amateur astronomer and has been observing the night skies for more than 30 years. Based on his work as star guide at the observatory in Stuttgart, Germany, he knows which objects are perfect for urbanites to watch.
