Features a picture of our very own Roger Hill, at the Texas Star Party, in 2007, illustrating a point about lifting heavy objects.

Granted...I picked this book up after the charts had already run out. I love stargazing and was hoping to get a little more insight into night photography and general gazing. I already have some excellent star books. This adds a little info but nothing any good stargazing book wouldn't already cover. If this is the first stargazing book you are picking up I think you will find it very good.
Unfortunately, the book is older. In the few times he mentions photography he is still using 35mm film :) He does list the lens that he uses. He said for some things you need at least 200mm but a lot of his pictures were taken with a 50mm which I was happy to find out because I have a nice 50mm lens but my 200mm lens is not as nice ;)… (mere)
