Product Description

Review

These are some of the most eye catching examples of astronomical photography --The Daily Mirror

An enthusiastic and inspiring guide to modern astronomy. Covering everything from simply looking at the stars with the naked eye through to a guide on choosing a telescope and coupling it with a DSLR, the images in the book are always inspiring and beautiful. --Digital Photographer

About the Author

Sir Patrick Moore is the presenter of the world's longest running television programme--BBC TV's The Sky at Night, which was first broadcast in 1957. He is author of more than 100 books, and has played a unique role in astronomy education and popularizing science through 6 decades. He was recently elected a Fellow of the Royal Society--something he shares with Sir Isaac Newton. Pete Lawrence appears regularly on The Sky at Night demonstrating practical astronomy with an emphasis on what can be seen in the night sky that month. He is an expert observer and photographer, and is renown for his spectacular astronomical images, several of which have featured on the NASA website--Astronomy Picture of the Day.

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

Nice pictures and smart black pages but light on real meaty astro information. I bought this to help me teach GCSE Astronomy as the official book is not worth buying. Didn't give me the information I needed but it looks good.
