This book is a love letter to the night sky, and the work required to capture these images from Earth. The night sky is a photographic treasure trove and is filled with wonders that lay beyond the naked human eye. A few seconds, or even hours with a camera though is another story. Take a photographic tour of the sky from nightscapes and the deepest sky galaxies, to our local celestial neighborhood in the solar system. Along the way, you’ll gain a new appreciation for the richness of the night sky and gain a few insights into how these photographs are taken.
As a part time astrophotographer myself, I find Richards book and images very inspiring. I wish I had the skill he does in both writing and astrophotography!
A beautiful book of astrophotography!
This is a book of astrophotos from the accomplished astrophotographer Richard Wright. The images consist of simple skyscapes obtained with a camera, lens, and a tripod to images of nebulae and galaxies acquired with a telescope that requires hours of exposure. All of the images are impressive and are not just technically beautiful but you can tell these are a labor of love.
