I know some collectSPACE members are keen astronomers so I would like to point out this amazing book: Catchers of the Light.
'Catchers of the Light' is a History of Astrophotography, which in its 1500 or so pages, its 1800 or more photographs/illustrations and over 2000 references/notes, represents the FIRST fully detailed and professionally researched book on the subject.
It tells the story of the 46 pioneers who did most to master the art of celestial photography, as it was known during its early days; and whose efforts have made it possible for us to see the many magnificent pictures of the heavens featured in books, magazines and on the internet.
