Celestron's NexStar telescopes were introduced in 1999, beginning with their first computer controlled "e;go to"e; model, a 5-inch. More models appeared in quick succession, and Celestron's new range made it one of the two dominant manufacturers of affordable "e;go to"e; telescopes. Michael Swanson's online discussions with literally thousands of NexStar owners made it clear that there was a desperate need for a book such as this - one that provides a complete, detailed guide to buying, using and maintaining NexStar telescopes. Although this book is highly comprehensive, it is suitable for beginners - there is a chapter on "e;Astronomy Basics"e; - and experts alike.
