Hickson Group Observer's Guide by Alvin Huey

Item No. 826-10150
Manuf. No. Scope City 890-10150

The Hickson Group Observer's Guide is the first in the "At The Eyepiece" series authored by Alvin Huey. The guides are written for intermediate and advanced observers who like a challenge. The "meat" of this publication features a two page spread containing everything an observer needs to locate, detect and observe each Group. The guide includes a naked eye chart with a TelRadTM superimposed upon it, a wide-field finder chart (about 2 x 1.5 degrees), a labeled inverted DSS image, an eyepiece rendition and detailed observerýs notes.
