|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.
