Immediately when opening this book to any page, you are dazzled with the visual clarity, precision and shear bewilderment of the photography, enticing you to delve into the surrounding text for further explanation of these wonders. Patrick Moore's ability in explaining the most difficult areas of astronomy into simplistic terms never ceases to amaze me. Even my wife who has never shown interest in anything in the sky other than the sun and hence suntan lotion found herself drawn to the images and wanting to know more about them.....what more can one say.... a great book for all.

It's the perfect book for all you amateur astronomy buddies out there. It combines Patrick's knowledge on the universe (from as close as our Moon to beyond the stars) with Pete's awesome pictures. From now on, if anyone asks me for telescope or camera advice again, I'll point them to this! And if this didn't convince you yet, you get a poster of Patrick's Moon Map and full sky maps with it too!

A very good book. It could have been better if it covered the digital aspect in more detail but that aside it still covered a lot
