Was wondering if anybody has a spare copy of this book that they want to sell??

I have just started out with my first telescope and understand that this book is ideal.

Would be very grateful to hear from anyone.

Many Thanks

Hi Phil.

Turn Left at Orion is like an Astronomers bible and your going to be hard pushed to find someone with a 'spare' copy. I think it's safe to say, the only way to get a copy is to buy a brand new book. You won't be dissapointed.

Hi Phil

I'd agree with "SkyHigh" - I'm new to telescopes & star gazing etc.

Like you I heard that "Turn Left at Orion" was a 'must'.

I got my copy as a Birthday present from her indoors (bless!!) - it's tops.

I have a 4.5" newtonian, not tops in terms of light gathering, so to have an interesting guide to where to find various interesting objects, and also HOW to find them, what to expect in the finder scope and the main image is just excellent.

Worth its weight in gold etc etc.

Try Amazon - maybe somebody there has a used copy in good nick for not much cash - I tend to buy many of my books this way...

Good luck!

At those prices, by the time you've paid p+p, you might just as well get a brand new copy from Telescope House, £19.99p inc delivery.
