I finally received my copies of Burnham's Celestial Handbook: An Observer's Guide to the Universe Beyond the Solar System vol 1,2 and 3 in the mail today. Only had a quick Sqizz through the books but they look good.

You will really enjoy these. Whilst some of the astrometric, epoch and other information is a little dated and now slightly inaccurate because of timing changes, they are still an excellent reference. I have had a set for many years and still use them from time to time.

The next step is to Find a copy of "Hartungs Astronomical Objects For Southern Telescopes " This is a Brillaint book for Southern Observers ;I am pretty sure you can't buy it new anymore but there are still copies on the net second hand. --Tony
