Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"In this book, US amateur Adam Stuart struts his stuff by turning his personal experiences . into a full-length book. What I especially liked is that the author goes to great lengths to show what a variety of instruments can do . . Stuart does a really nice job presenting astrophotography . I for one found many of his tips and suggestions to be invaluable. The best feature of this book is . high-quality colour images . . the author must truly be congratulated!"
