Since it was first published in 1968, this reference book has enjoyed enormous popularity as a handbook for amateur observers of the southern sky. Five introductory chapters discuss briefly the various types of objects available for study. They are followed by a table and descriptions of over 1000 objects between the South Pole and 50N declination, each of which was observed by the author. An addendum lists a further 80 objects visible to more northerly observers. There is also a valuable chapter on equipment and observing for amateurs.
