Further Detail 

"Philip's Solar System Observer's Guide" is a practical and colourful introduction to our 'corner' of the Universe. It describes how to observe not only the planets but also the Moon, Sun, comets, meteors, asteroids and other objects found within our Solar System. It is ideal for users of binoculars and small- to medium-sized telescopes. Each chapter is devoted to a different object, and in each case the author explains how to find the object, how to observe it, what you can expect to see and how you can record your observations. The chapters are illustrated with digital images, photographs and sketches obtained by both amateur and professional astronomers. Dates are provided for special events, such as eclipses, transits, oppositions and so on, where appropriate, so that the reader can make the most of the best opportunities available. Where specialist equipment is required - for example, when observing the Sun - this is clearly explained. A separate chapter provides an overview of the equipment and techniques needed by most Solar System observers, and includes tips on dealing with light pollution and poor seeing conditions.
