Using the "Maltese Cross" star map design, widely acknowledged as superior to the conventional circular maps for locating constellations, this book provides everything amateur astronomers need. 12 maps trace the month-by-month progression of the constellations, viewed from every direction. Newly-revised tables give approximate positions of the planets for the years 1992 through 1997 and special sections discuss meteors and comets.
