From the reviews: "Binoculars are an often-overlooked lower-cost alternative for introductory astronomy students and beginning amateur astronomers. ... The detailed information on buying and maintaining binoculars will be particularly useful for those who have always used telescopes. ... Photographs and drawings are excellent and enhance the usefulness of the book; the appendixes contain additional information to enable proper selection and expert use of binoculars in astronomy. An excellent addition to the well-regarded Practical Astronomy series. Summing Up: Highly Recommended. General reader; lower-division undergraduates; faculty/professionals." (D. H. Gifford, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (11), August, 2007)
