Excellent and informative This is just the book you need if you want a practical, succinct guide to photographing the night sky in all its forms. Jennifer clearly sets out her methods and her reasons for doing so. It was my ‘go to’ guide when on a trip to the Matterhorn recently where I photographed the galactic core over this famous landmard-the book is neat enough to slip in to your luggage and it was an aide memoire for me whilst I was away.
