Observing the Arp Peculiar Galaxies is the third in the “At the Eyepiece” series by Alvin Huey.  The guides were written for intermediate and advanced observers who like a challenge.  The objective of this publication is not just to guide the observer in detecting the galaxy, but to guide the observer in detecting the peculiar structure.

This publication features the naked eye sky, strategically sectioned into 46 manageable chunks, containing up to 12 Arp Peculiar Galaxies per section.   A detailed page with a wide-field finder chart, observing notes, labeled inversed DSS image and an eyepiece rendition is dedicated to each Arp.  Search Inside this Book
