This comprehensive work takes you on a personal tour of the universe using nothing more than a pair of binoculars. More comprehensive than any book currently available, it starts with Earth's nearest neighbor, the moon, and then goes on to explore each planet in the solar system, asteroids, meteors, comets and the sun. Following this, the reader is whisked away into deep space to explore celestial bodies including stars that are known and many sights less familiar. The final chapter includes a detailed atlas of deep-sky objects visible through binoculars. The appendices include guidance on how to buy, care for and maintain astronomical binoculars, tips and hints on using them, and detailed information on several home-made binocular mounts.

From Library Journal:

Many works for amateur astronomers emphasize the use of telescopes, but this book shows the wealth of astronomical work that can be done with binoculars. Relegating technical details on binoculars to appendixes, Harrington, a freelance astronomy writer, introduces the reader to the solar system, stars, galaxies, and nebulae in general. He then provides a constellation-by-constellation survey, providing data on the most view-worthy deep-sky objects visible through binoculars. Throughout the book, the author carefully and consistently notes the capabilities and limitations of binoculars. Strongly recommended for public and academic libraries.
