I have recently finished the Second Edition of the Springer publication “Making Beautiful Deep-Sky Images” and it has been sent off to them to make bookworthy.  Springer then sends me back the draft (with all the page numbers) and I then have the final (mind-destroying) job of putting the Index together.  You will see the new 2nd Edition in the shops next year (I’ll let you know when) and if you have the 1st Edition, there’s enough new stuff in the 2nd Edition (including completely new chapters, and completely re-written old chapters) to warrant raiding your wallets for a second time.  The biggest change you will see on the front cover is the removal of the sub-title “Astrophotography with Affordable Equipment and Software” – with a chapter dedicated to the New Forest Observatory mini-WASP Array – some of the equipment is now anything but affordable.

Noel Carboni recently processed the 22-hours of data from the Sky 90 mini-WASP array.  This data comprised 15 and 20-minute sub-exposures.

It the recent Winter Solstice 2015 to Summer Solstice 2016 Solargraph.  I think I had the tilt angle towards the Zenith a little too large for this one 🙁  Never mind, you still get the general overall picture 🙂

Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish my work.

Today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day is a pinhole camera Solargraph of the Sun’s path across my southern horizon from Summer Solstice (June 21st) until Winter Solstice (December 21st) 2010.  An EPOD Encore is showing an earlier EPOD that was a Viewers’ Choice Winner from the past.

Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish my work 🙂
