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.  

A discussion on observing galaxies, equipment selection, observing sites and recording observations are included.

Nov 2022: Due to the ever increasing costs to print the observing guide, we unfortunately need to increase the price by $3 USD for the first time since launch in 2005.

2nd Edition, 258 pages.
