Sky Guide 2017: Africa South is a practical resource for all astronomers, whether they be novice, amateur or professional. It covers the upcoming year’s planetary movements, predicted eclipses, meteor showers – any events and facets of the night sky that change annually. Star charts plot the evening sky for each season, facilitating the identification of stars and constellations. The guide contains a wealth of information about the Sun, Moon, planets, comets, meteors and bright stars, with photos, diagrams, charts and images. There’s also an excellent list of useful websites and a comprehensive glossary.

This annual publication is an invaluable guide for anyone who has even a passing interest in the night skies of southern Africa and is ‘… an absolute must for first-time star-gazers and professional astronomers alike’.

Look inside for the tear-out entry form and enter to win an iOptron’s Astroboy portable telescope. The built-in computer moves the telescope so that it stays on target as the Earth rotates. Just click and it finds stars, planets, and deep-sky objects for you.
