FROM THE REVIEWS:

NATURE MAGAZINE
"…a very practical set of instructions for observing and photographing the eclipse, which fits well in Patrick Moore’s ‘Practical Astronomy’ series. The information obviously comes from knowledgeable and experienced observers…Detailed hints on focusing and on the problems of camera shake are wise.”

SPACEFLIGHT
"It is written by two experienced observers and contains practically all the information any amateur observer could wish to know about observing solar eclipses.”

ASTRONOMY NOW
"It covers every detail, from how to dress for Outer Mongolia or altitude sickness on the Chilean Altiplano, to how to roll your own film and construct the test complex photographic systems. If you plan to take your eclipse chasing seriously then this book is a ‘must have’.”
