Or maybe you've looked at a few bright Messiers but are left wondering where all those great details and amazing views are that people keep writing about. Or maybe you have trouble finding anything other than M42 and the Ring Nebula. Many people find deep sky observing to be very frustrating, disappointing, or both. These guides are designed to help you bypass the frustrations and have better success.
