With the upcoming September 15 release of the “Backyard Astronomer’s Guide, 4th Edition” by Terence Dickinson and Alan Dyer, readers will have access to a fully redesigned and expanded edition of this classic publication which has been a go-to astronomy guide for nearly 30 years.
As technology evolves at a breathtaking clip and with new information about observing techniques and equipment constantly being introduced, the publishers have massively revised and expanded 4th edition which has been completely rebuilt and updated (an additional 48 pages brings the page count to 416).
Illustrated throughout with all-new photographs and star charts, this edition boasts a refreshed design and features five brand-new chapters, including three essential essays on binocular, telescope and Moon tours by renowned astronomy writer Ken Hewitt-White.
With new content on naked-eye sky sights, LED lighting technology, Wi-Fi-enabled telescopes and the latest advances in binoculars, telescopes and other astronomical gear, the fourth edition of The Backyard Astronomer’s Guide is sure to become an indispensable reference for all levels of stargazers.
The latest techniques for observing the Sun, the Moon and solar and lunar eclipses are an especially timely addition, given the upcoming solar eclipses in 2023 and 2024. Rounding out the new updates are new sections on dark sky reserves, astro-tourism, modern astrophotography and cellphone astrophotography.
The Backyard Astronomer’s Guide also features a foreword by Dr. Sara Seager, a Canadian-American astrophysicist and planetary scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an internationally recognized expert in the search for exoplanets.
