"An absolute must for first-time stargazers and professional astronomers alike. This concise and practical Sky Guide not only provides you with monthly maps, charts of the heavens and basic astronomical background, but also a wonderful insight into African lore related to current astronomical events. This lightweight small book fits into any purse or backpack wherever you go. You can glean more with one quick glance than from browsing the Internet." Professor Renée Kraan-Korteweg, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy, University of Cape Town

 "The Sky Guide has become an invaluable resource for anyone in South Africa who has an interest in astronomy, from the fledgling stargazer to the professional astronomer. The monthly dairy is very useful to keep up with events and the supporting diagrams are excellent and easy to interpret."  Dr David Buckley, SALT Project Scientist & Astronomy Operations Manager
