 Annals of the Deep Sky is a comprehensive reference that guides amateur and semipro astronomers into every mind-boggling corner of the observational universe. Each volume presents extensive descriptions of prominent stars and deep-sky objects. No other popular work in astronomy provides the comprehensive historical background and astrophysical appraisals of prominent stars and celestial objects. 

 Volume 2 explores the constellations of Aquila, Ara, Aries, Auriga, Boötes, and Caelum, and features a glossary of essential astrophysical terms. Object profiles include the Great Aquila Rift; NGC 6188 and NGC 6193 in Ara, an OB1 association containing “rim nebulae”; the disturbed galaxy NGC 772 (Arp 78) in Aries; the enigmatic star Epsilon Aurigae; NGC 546, a globular cluster with a tidal tail in Boötes; and the “Carafe” group of galaxies with unusual morphologies in Caelum.
