 Observer's Sky Atlas: The 500 Best Deep-Sky Objects With Charts and Images by Erich Karkoschka.

This tremendous new edition of a classic book (previously published only in black-and-white) contains star charts and pictures, for all those who observe the night sky with unaided eyes, binoculars or telescopes. It is equally useful for beginners and experienced old hands at astronomy.

A legend among hobby astronomers, this entirely revised and updated edition has new celestial maps in full color, up-to-date data from the Gaia spacecraft and unique comparison images of most visible celestial objects. Sixty-one all-new star charts are good through 2060, and there are 532 pictures of stars, galaxies and nebulae, 415 of them in full color.

Very detailed position figures help the astronomer navigate the charts and accurately pinpoint objects for viewing - and knowing what you're seeing.

The hobby astronomer can use it to find star clusters, gaseous nebulae and galaxies throughout the night sky. Quick orientation is guaranteed, and intermediate astronomers can really enjoy the night sky for hours and hours by knowing where to locate the objects of their interest.
