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 7 explores the constellations of Corona Borealis, Corvus, Crater, and Crux. Featured objects include the enigmatic variable star R Coronae Borealis; the dusty face-on spiral galaxy NGC 5958 in Corona Borealis; the spectacular young merging galactic system NGC 4038 and NGC 4039 (the Antennae Galaxies) in Corvus; the Crater Cluster; and the Jewel Box (NGC 4755) and Coalsack Nebula in Crux. Also included is an extensive appendix on the life and work of William and Caroline Herschel.
