This is a great book for browsing and for getting inspiration. There is a wide variety of photographs covering the sun, planets, aurora, meteors, comets and deep sky objects of all types. There are some very nice fusions of landscape and sky. This is essentially a picture book and such books stand or fall on the quality and merits of their pictures. This book passes such a test with ease. The pictures themselves are of a quality that is achieved by only a select few and the quality of reproduction is excellent. Each picture is accompanied by a succinct description of the object.
However I do have some criticisms. Nowhere are there any details of the exposure or of the telescope used. It would have been nice to have an appendix with this information and perhaps also an indication of the scale. The page numbering system is a little odd. Pages 1-8 occur before the list of contents. Also, in many cases the pictures cover the whole page and in this case the page numbers are not printed. This means having to search for a numbered page and then counting from there to locate a particular page number.
I have noticed some glaring and quite inexplicable factual errors in the figure captions. On Page 41 there is a picture of a crescent moon, 3 or 4 days old. The caption says"Earth's shadow transforms the lunar surface into a stark and desolate landscape of mountains, valleys and craters". What is this supposed to mean? The Earth's shadow has got nothing to do with the visibility of features on a crescent moon.
On Page 42, there is a picture of a transit of Mercury. The caption is quite explicit that what is seen is the SHADOW of Mercury on the sun and not Mercury itself.
However these are relatively minor points and this is a book which I have no hesitation in recommending.
