Most probably not, as we would all know it. You will be certainly cheaper
and perhaps happy if you gather your info from the web (e.g., start with the
Messier pages [see URL in my .sig] and pages I've linked [follow "More
Messier", "Deep Sky Images", or "Astronomy and Space Links" in the Links
section], or the Deep Sky Atlas of the Hawaiian Astronomical Society, look
at http://www.hawastsoc.org/).
