I have the second edition and the third edition. Both were really great books.

Though I don't really think I can justify buying the fourth edition too, given I'm unlikely to upgrade anything I have.
Regards,
Renato

Is there a big difference in content between 2nd and 3rd editions? I've got 3rd edition, but really not sure if 4th would be significantly better to justify the purchase.

There was a big difference between those two editions because GOTO telescopes and digital photography came along as big things.

But now, I don't recollect as big a jump as that happening since the third edition came out.

Cheers,
