interesting - wonder what was updated?

what was the going price Neil?

As far as I can tell the star charts have been fully revised with more deep sky objects, and some monthly viewing lists.
Retail price is $45.00

Oh, and the astro-imaging section has been expanded somewhat.

I have the first edition and think its a great publication
hey ....I bet I know something thats changed in later editions
Are the constellatoin headers in another colour than red?

Yes, the page headers are now in black, and as from the second edition, the star charts are aligned for the southern hemisphere.

I bought the 2nd edition some time back from Aust Geographic. Glad I did, really great read and reference book.

Looks like it is time to upgrade!
Done! Around $41 from Fishpond.com.au

I've been reading through the 3rd edition - looks to be a wonderful book. I have noticed that it seems to be missing a page though. In the section near the end of the book, pages 286-290, there is a "Deep-sky object planner" showing what is good to look for in each month of the year.
The listing jumps from August to November.
I dunno, maybe they assumed it would be cloudy in September and October?
Does anyone know where to find the missing page for Sep/Oct?
