Summary "What applies to big groups of stars can also be applied to smaller ones - so here is a set of memorable mini-constellations to help astronomers identify and remember stars in typical binocular or low-magnification telescopic fields. Size, stellar magnitudes, and coordinates are provided, along with north direction, star-hopping instructions and Sky Atlas 2000 references. Not only is this book a new and effective aid to navigating the night sky, it's also the basis of a great group activity for star parties - guessing and visualizing entirely new star patterns."--Jacket.
