Amazon.ca: Touring the Universe through Binoculars: A Complete Astronomer's Guidebook: Books
I just purchased a pair of binoculars, a Vivetar 7x50 if you please. I thought I'd use them for birdwatching and of course a little astronomy. Living in a small town does afford an environment where there isn't that much light pollution, although its still there.
I got the above book out of the local library and have spent some time star gazing. It's quite something to see some of the wonders of the universe.
