Annals of the Deep Sky Vol 5.
Centaurus, Cepheus, and Cetus

Jeff Kanipe & Dennis Webb

The fifth volume of the Annals of the Deep Sky Series by Kanipe and Webb has recently come out. And we have it here at the Lamplighter Library! Featured constellations in Volume 5 are Centaurus, Cepheus, and Cetus. Deep sky objects are the main focus of the book, but there are also in-depth descriptions of other interesting celestial objects within the highlighted constellations, as well as numerous maps and charts. For example, the diagram shown beside the book cover shows a figure from the Centaurus section indicating what parts of the Earth can see the constellation entirely or partially. Stop by at the library table to have a look at this book and many others that will be out on display.

The Lamplighter Library will not be accessible during the renovation of our usual meeting venue, the star theatre, but in the meantime a selection of books will be available outside the IMAX theatre before and after each meeting!
