Suit Year 5 Up
Penston & Morison
Astronomy is a comprehensive look at what we know about the universe and the ways in which amateurs can observe and learn more about the heavenly bodies. From Big Bang theories, the evolution of the stars and the Solar System to giant galaxies of outer space. Sophisticated optical aids and how to watch the stars are also covered. I like this book a lot as the illustrations and explanations are great.
