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 observer’s notes.  Search Inside this Book
