Another Newbie question....

What books would you consider "essential" for the novice to have, or add, to his/her library?" ................... This will form the foundation of a collection that will be given to a local school (grades 9-12) after I assume room temperature.
Thanks,

Ron

Pocket Sky Atlas, a scope and a clear, dark sky. Those are three wonderful things to combine together when your new.
