Astronomy Hacks, written by amateur astronomers, is a collection of their hard-won knowledge: everything from advice on choosing, using, and maintaining equipment to observing tips and tricks, to short essays explaining the concepts needed to understand to make the most of your hobby. The book is divided into four chapters. The first, Getting Started, answers most of the common newcomer’s questions, including choosing the best telescopes and binoculars, helping you avoid the most common errors. The next chapter is on ‘Observing Hacks’, and explains everything from fundamental concepts to tips and tricks for getting the most detail from very dim objects, to organizing your records, to sketching objects. Chapter three, Scope Hacks, explains how to tweak, modify, upgrade, and maintain your telescope. The last chapter is on accessorizing: choosing and using accessories.

If you're interested in Astronomy, you'll find this book very helpful.
