Choosing and Using Astronomical Eyepieces

As a newbie amateur astronomer I was delighted to receive a Christmas gift from my eldest son titled “Choosing and Using Astronomical Eyepieces” by William Paolini ( first published in 2013 )

For anyone starting out in the hobby it is an excellent book which provides easy to read information on the A to Z of Eyepieces and for those who have been observing for some time I suspect it would be a good reference book.

The author William Paolini has had quite an accomplished professional career and has been an amateur astronomer for over 50 years.

I can highly recommend this book if you are starting out in amateur astronomy.

Welcome Martin .It is a top book.

Bill is very well know on the amateur Astro forums, esp Cloudy Nights , and even here..he's written many articles on eps for magazines etc , and needs no introduction to most of us and is very well regarded.
