I strongly recommend this book if you'd like to explore the heavens
with your camera. So head outdoors and record the wonder of our
planet, solar system, and galaxies. The film's cheap, and there's
no reason to ever sleep again!-- "National Parks Traveler"
The techniques are well explained and lead readers through the process ... Photo tips the authors impart include photographing star trails, moon phases and twilight; capturing phenomena such as auroras, noctilucent clouds and those mercurial meteors.-- "Oregonlive.com"
