MEDIA 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!" (Neil English, Astronomy Now, March, 2007)

"Adam Stuart's book is a practical, enthusiastic, hands-on tale of the numerous challenges he faced and overcame during the construction of a home observatory under the light-polluted skies of southern Florida." (David Malin, Australian Physics, Vol. 43 (5), 2006)
