    It's a fantastic book. In fact, all of this has got me reading like I've never read before. I'm currently reading through Carl Sagan Cosmos & have A Brief History of Time in the wings for my next read.

    I may add a couple of pics in the coming months but generally, we spend most time just looking around.

    Brillant report...

    BTW, I dont agree about learning Astronomy before astrophotography, Astronomy in a pure visual sense is a life time to learn. I learn my sky as I take my photos.

    Just a thought
