Stephen O'Meara's new and exciting observing guide spotlights an original selection of 109 deep-sky objects that will appeal to sky-watchers worldwide. His 'hidden treasures' include a wonderful assortment of galaxies, open clusters, planetary nebulae and more, all of which have been carefully chosen based on their popularity and ease of observing. None of these objects are included in either the Messier or the Caldwell catalogs, and all are visible in a 4-inch telescope under dark skies. Stunning photographs and beautiful drawings accompany detailed visual descriptions of the objects, which include their rich histories and astrophysical significance. The author's original finder charts are designed to help observers get to their targets fast and efficiently.

Deep Sky Companions The Secret Deep

The Secret Deep is the fourth title in my Deep-Sky Companions series – the other
three books are Deep-Sky Companions: The Messier Objects, Deep-Sky
Companions: The Caldwell Objects, and Deep-Sky Companions: Hidden
Treasures.

In this fresh list, Stephen James O'Meara presents 109 new objects for stargazers to observe. The Secret Deep list contains many exceptional objects, including a planetary nebula whose last thermal pulse produced a circumstellar shell similar to the one expected in the final days of our Sun's life; a piece of the only supernova remnant known visible to the unaided eye; the flattest galaxy known; the largest edge-on galaxy in the heavens; the brightest quasar; and the companion star to one of the first black hole candidates ever discovered. Each object is accompanied by beautiful photographs and sketches, original finder charts, visual histories and up-to-date astrophysical information to enrich the observing experience. Featuring galaxies, clusters and nebulae not covered in other Deep-Sky Companions books, this is a wonderful addition to the series and an essential guide for any deep-sky observer.

In Southern Gems, Stephen James O'Meara makes a detour beneath the southern skies, presenting a fresh list of 120 deep-sky objects for southern hemisphere stargazers to observe. Showcasing many exceptional objects catalogued by the pioneering observer James Dunlop, known as the 'Messier of the southern skies', all are visible through small- to moderate-sized telescopes or binoculars under dark skies. The list features some of the blackest dark nebulae, icy blue planetary nebulae and magnificent galaxies of all types. Each object is accompanied by beautiful photographs and sketches, original finder charts, visual histories and up-to-date astrophysical background information. Whether you live in the southern hemisphere or are just visiting, this new Deep-Sky Companion will make a perfect observing partner, whatever your background. There is no other southern sky guide like it on the market.

Relax. Linger over the national parks you'll visit in this book. Seven maps and 129 photographs will take you there. In the northern Cascade Range in Washington State, you'll hike amid snowy crags and alpine meadows. In Minnesota's Voyageurs National Park, you'll cruise among lakes once plied by fur trappers. In the badlands of North Dakota, you'll dodge bison, and off California's coast, you'll discover an isolated wildlife haven in the Channel Islands. In the Guadalupe Mountains of Texas, you'll explore an exposed portion of a 400-mile-long marine fossil reef. In Florida, you'll snorkel among the coral islands and reefs of Biscayne National Park, and in Alaska, you'll hike in the wilderness park of Katmai.
