I have written a short book which is now available on Amazon. It is basically a memoir of some of my experiences in amateur astronomy prompted by my Herschel 400 observing project from 2004 to 2006.
Currently, the book is a Kindle version only but even if you don’t own a Kindle, you can download the Kindle for PC app (for free from Amazon) which will allow you to read it on your PC.
The book is normally $2.99, but I will occasionally announce a promotion where you can download for free. Click on the cover image above to link to the Amazon page.
I hope you enjoy it.
An excerpt from Living at the Edge of the Universe:
“I became a beachcomber, camped along the coastline of the cosmic ocean and my small telescope was a collector of rare and ancient photons that washed ashore from the very edges of existence. These photons, which may have traveled across the cosmos for tens or even hundreds of millions of years, were funneled by the scope at the last instant, between blinks, into the camera obscura of my eye to form a ghostly vision in my brain.”
