The work is intended for the information of general readers, especially for those who have acquired a relish for astronomical pursuits, and who wish to become acquainted with the instruments by which celestial observations are made.

Some of the things described in this book are little known to the average reader, while others are well known; but all possess the fascination of whatever is strange, obscure, or mysterious magnified, by the portentous scale of the phenomena.
by Camille Flammarion - D. Appleton and Company
The Science of Astronomy is sublime and beautiful. It gives us wings, and bears us through Infinitude. In these ethereal regions all is pure, luminous, and splendid. Dreams of the Ideal, even of the Inaccessible, weave their subtle spells upon us.
The Caldwell Catalogue is an astronomical catalog of 109 star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies for observation by amateur astronomers. The list was compiled by Sir Patrick Caldwell-Moore, as a complement to the Messier Catalogue.
