Astronomy books

    Anyone on HUKD have an interest in astronomy? Looking to buy a good beginners guide book for a friends Christmas so was hoping that someone on here may be able to recommend a good book on the subject.



    i recommend Turn left at Orion - ]http//ww…906

    bought this for my dad last year, he was just starting out in astronomy. Has some great in depth information, but is really easy to follow. Also has some really good guides on how to find some key sights.

    cheapest one i can see is at WH smith

    my dad is well into his astrology - hes been on the sky at night and ever met patrick moore a few times!

    and from what he says, id say the books written by patrik moore are always a good bet
