Product description

Review

"The book is written as though the author has visited all the places described, and the style is very readable. The text is peppered with useful web addresses for local campsites, hotels, park opening times, etc. ... If the reader is determined to seek out all the dark places in the UK and the United States, this book will be invaluable ... ." (Malcolm Gough, The Observatory, Vol. 137 (1258), June, 2017)

From the Back Cover

Finding a Million-Star Hotel explores the modern phenomenon of astro-tourism, the efforts by increasing numbers of people to find nearby and distant locations where they can see the real night sky so often hidden by light pollution. Astronomer Bob Mizon directs readers to dark sky sites in the United Kingdom, the United States, and a few further afield. This is more than just a hotel guide with links for accommodation at or near the locations. There are chapters on choosing telescopes and binoculars, on celestial objects astro-tourists can look for in the night sky, and an investigation into the causes of the skyglow that veils our view of the stars.
Most of those who go seeking the stars are not professional astronomers. This book is aimed at those observers with limited knowledge of the night sky who are eager to explore and enjoy it. Even those contemplating setting up astro-themed hotels, campsites, or astronomy events can benefit from reading this book and from the advice included on how to equip such places, stargazing etiquette and star-friendly lighting.
