Spectacular nebulae where stars are born, beautiful star clusters from the early formation of the Milky Way, and galaxies as far as a billion light years away, all feature in this book of stunning images from astro photographer Chris Baker. The author takes the reader on a journey through time and space to the Deep Sky, far beyond our Solar System. It is a pictorial description of the awe-inspiring wondrous objects that exist “out there”. The images are of objects from hundreds to many millions of light years away; distances of such enormity are hard for our minds to grasp. The book presents fascinating information on what the Earth was like when the light started its earth-bound journey through space. For example, as the light left the Andromeda Galaxy 2.5 million years ago on its interstellar journey to Chris’s telescope, the Himalayas are still being raised and Polar Bears roam Britain. Chapters are included describing the basics of astrophotography, as modern telescopes and cameras make this a rewarding hobby well within reach of the amateur astronomer. Chris describes his observatory in the mountains of Spain along with practical guidance on how to get started in astrophotography. AUTHOR: Since 2003 the author has been photographing the Deep Sky, initially from his home in the UK but since 2012 from his observatory atop a mountain in Spain. Here the air is clear, the surroundings dark and the skies mostly clear. This enables Chris to photograph deep into space, capturing the beauty of such things as star forming regions and distant galaxies. Chris has established a reputation as a leading astro photographer receiving awards, with his photographs and articles being published in numerous magazines. In 2015 Chris made his images available as limited edition wall art, known as ‘Galaxy on Glass’. This successful art business has attracted customers from all over the World, allowing others to enjoy these sensational images in their own homes and offices. 60 colour illustrations
