Nebulae are the places where stars are born. They can also be opaque clouds of dust that block out view of the stars beyond. Starlight reflecting on cosmic dust clouds, or hot luminous expanding gases left over from supernova explosions.  Any descriptions of this class of object is ….. well ….. nebulous.

And yet this broad category contains the most fascinating and beautiful objects of the night sky.  Some are very easy to see, while others challenge the most experienced observers.

Nebulae and How to Observe Them presents an up-to-date detailed description and categorization of nebulae (part one); and then (part two) describes in practical terms how best to successfully observe and record them.

This book is a mine of information for all levels of amateur astronomers, from relative beginners to experienced observers,  In one book, here is all you need to understand and observe those diverse and beautiful objects that fall under the heading of ‘nebulae’.
