Okay, where is everyone? At this rate it will be a long time before we get to 100.

Hi Kent,

I just saw a really great intro to astronomy book.

"THE MONTHLY SKY GUIDE" by Ian Ridpath. Wil Tiron.

I thought it gave some nice background information on the constellations, where they are, and what to see in them. I wish I had this book when I was starting out. It has large pages, with enough detail to make it interesting, but not appear overwhelming. The star maps are great and it has some good closeup charts for when there are many interesting things in an area.
