Biografie (woord)

Wil Tirion is a full-time uranographer. He is famous among the amateur astronomy community for the numerous atlases and star charts he has created. Other successful books include Sky Atlas 2000.0 (with Roger W. Sinott, Cambridge, 1998), The Cambridge Star Atlas, 3rd edition (Cambridge, 2001), The Cambridge Double Star Atlas, 2nd edition (with Bruce MacEvoy, Cambridge, 2015), and The Monthly Sky Guide, 9th edition (with Ian Ridpath, Cambridge, 2013).


'How should one introduce the constellation patterns to someone who wants to learn about the stars? This book approaches the complete beginner by taking them on a journey round the sky (hence the title), starting with a brief introduction to how distances are measured on the sky, even briefer but useful instructions for using the various illustrations, and a set of sky maps for the four seasons (for the northern hemisphere - a companion book treats the southern stars). … Overall, this is a very suitable and attractive book for the complete newcomer to astronomy, which gives just enough information to whet the appetite for more. The text is clearly written, and Wil Tirion's sky maps are well up to his usual high standard.' Robert Connon Smith, The Observatory
