Amateur stargazers will value this combination logbook and astronomy fact book, with sky maps included. It also offers novice astronomers a primer that explains sky-watching basics. A clear night sky has limitless objects to study, and the view changes constantly with passing hours and changing seasons. Whether backyard astronomers study the heavens with binoculars, a telescope, or the naked eye, they’re likely to see objects they’ll want to note down and remember. The Night Sky Tracker’s extensive logbook is set up to help users list date, time, their viewing location, light conditions, and weather conditions over a period of 100 evenings. It also provides spaces to list observed constellations, phases of the Moon, visible planets, meteors, and special sightings, such as comets or earth-launched satellites. This handy astronomers’ helper is specially designed for outdoor use at night, featuring a rubberized PCV cover with wraparound flap and snap for protection against nighttime dew, and a hidden spiral binding. The cover has glow-in-the dark markings, so it won’t get lost in the night shadows. Here’s a great gift item for giving to amateur astronomers—if they haven’t already picked up a copy for themselves. Printed in two colors, with maps and illustrations.
