Product Description

This is the second edition of a book that has been in print since 1984. This book turns the 2102-D Star Finder into a hand-held planetarium, which will become your most important tool for star ID and for planning star and planet sights in celestial navigation. Its numerous examples and diagrams make it a most definitive treatment.

In addition to a description of the star finder and its basic use, the book covers: brightness and colour of stars, planet identification, choosing optimum star-moon-planet combinations, choosing time between sunlines and running fixes, and emergency steering.

It also includes many unique practical tables not found elsewhere, such as how to tell the best use of the moon from its age, how to compare brightness of stars and planets in an easy way, which stars are reddish, and more. This book is an indispensable companion to the star finder itself.
