Book Description:

From the reviews:

"Mullaney packs an incredible amount of information into this 166-page book. … All in all, The Herschel Objects, and how to observe them is engaging, challenging, well-written, and comprehensive. So, if you love deep-sky observing – and even if you’ve observed the Astronomical League’s Herschel 400 – Mullaney’s book offers a new list with several hundred additional objects you’ll enjoy." (Michael Bakich, Astronomy Magazine, October, 2007)

"The Herschel Objects and How to Observe Them is a fine addition to the Springer series of observing guides. Mullaney has been observing the Herschel objects for many years and his passion for them clearly comes across. … Overall though, this is a book that will be a useful addition to any deep-sky observer’s library." (Paul Money, BBC Sky at Night, February, 2008)

"Mullaney begins with a well-written biographical sketch of Herschel and his family, and explains the significance of the work of this great observational astronomer. … the objects are illustrated with excellent images obtained using a modern charge-coupled device (CCD) system. The book concludes with a list of 618 targets that would provide for a lifetime of study. The book will be of greatest interest to experienced observers who wish to push on to the most challenging deep sky objects. … Summing Up: Recommended. General readers." (D. E. Hogg, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (6), February, 2008)

"The book opens with a few short chapters on Herschel himself together with a brief introduction to observing techniques … . rounded out with some objects that the author regards as showpieces that were not discovered by Herschel. Any collection of these will of course be very subjective. … I found the book’s reproductions to be a cut above the usual Springer ones and the book does offers something sufficiently different … and the Astronomical League guides to make it worth adding to your collection." (Owen Brazell, The Observatory, Vol. 128 (1203), 2008)
