Deep-Sky Companions: Southern Gems, Hardback Book

Deep-Sky Companions: Southern Gems Hardback

Description

In Southern Gems, Stephen James O'Meara makes a detour beneath the southern skies, presenting a fresh list of 120 deep-sky objects for southern hemisphere stargazers to observe.

Showcasing many exceptional objects catalogued by the pioneering observer James Dunlop, known as the 'Messier of the southern skies', all are visible through small- to moderate-sized telescopes or binoculars under dark skies.

The list features some of the blackest dark nebulae, icy blue planetary nebulae and magnificent galaxies of all types.

Each object is accompanied by beautiful photographs and sketches, original finder charts, visual histories and up-to-date astrophysical background information.

Whether you live in the southern hemisphere or are just visiting, this new Deep-Sky Companion will make a perfect observing partner, whatever your background.

There is no other southern sky guide like it on the market.
