"Upon receipt of your book and going through it front to back, must say very much impressed. This little book has it all and is of use and benefit to any level star gazer.

You did a great job in the format and layout. I like the binocular symbol usage and the brief description or notable of each listed object with space for notes. In the back of book: Messier catalog along with listing by type, NGC list, info on stars and dates of meteor showers, plus charts!!!

Simple to use, well organized, easy to understand, everything needed right at your fingertips in portable size. You have definitely filled a void and this book will be greatly appreciated in the hands of anyone wanting to expand their search of the heavens.

My opinion: this book is a "Must" for any interested astronomer of any degree."
