Left Turn At Orion

Turn Left at Orion: A Hundred Night Sky Objects to See in a Small Telescope--and How to Find Them
If you are just starting out or even an old hand at astronomy Left Turn At Orion is a good all around book. You will not find the wazoo pictures you get from Hubble.
What you WILL find are very good drawings that look more like what you will see in the eyepiece.
Left Turn At Orion will walk you right to the object, very will done!
