The practical spotter"s guide to the night sky, combined with fascinating accounts of celestial myths and symbols.

The Complete Guide to the Constellations is a highly original, fully illustrated guide to the night sky, combining astronomy, myth and symbolism in equal measure. A practical guide to identifying the constellations and the stars that comprise them, it brings star-watching vividly to life by conveying the rich symbolic significance that the heavens assumed in antiquity. "Signpost charts" and "full-sky maps" make star navigation easy. Assuming no prior knowledge of astronomy, the book concentrates on features that can be made out with the naked eye or binoculars.
