For those who are new to Astronomy or even experienced this book is
IMHO a must have introduction and reference to the hobby:

Nightwatch : A Practical Guide to Viewing the Universe

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1552093026/ref=pd_sim_books/103-5173756-2563865

One of the best sections of the book are a series of detailed maps that show the various deep sky objects and where they are located with respect to the major constellations. The maps also include info on what type of instrument you will need to view them (binoculars, small telescope, or large).

Very worthwhile.
