So why not buy a copy of Star Vistas for the budding astronomer in your family?  Also – with Forewords by Sir Arthur C Clarke, Sir Patrick Moore, and Dr. Brian May – this first edition is likely to become something of a collectors’ item in the years to come – so why not invest now? :)

I often check to see how Star Vistas is doing on Amazon.co.uk and got a bit of surprise when I just got in from walking the dog over the forest.  I have the number 1 and 2 slots in the “Popular Astronomy” section of Amazon U.K. the number 1 slot being “Making Beautiful Deep-Sky Images” and the number 2 slot “Star Vistas” co-authored with Noel Carboni.  If someone has been doing a bit of bulk ordering – thank you – or, on the other hand, if this is just a bump in sales (ready for Christmas?) – then thank you again :)

Just done a lightning round trip to Bristol to pick up the Star Vistas images from the PhotoGallery.  Many thanks to Jamie and team for organising this one.  They had a book full of visitors over the exhibition opening period from 22nd October – 3rd November.  Keep visiting the New Forest Observatory web-site to see where the next Star Vistas exhibition will be held :)

Just to remind you that the Star Vistas deep-sky images Exhibition opens at the Photo Gallery in Bristol tomorrow evening.  I will give a PowerPoint presentation on the work carried out at the New Forest Observatory over the past 6 years at some point during the proceedings.  There will be only 4 signed copies of Star Vistas (the book) available for sale – so if you’d like one of these I suggest you move quickly on the night.  If you bring your own copy of Star Vistas I am happy to sign it on the night :)   So that’s it – opening tomorrow evening and runs until November 3rd 2010 – hope to see you there.

Huge jump in sales of Star Vistas on U.K. Amazon today – no idea why – if you’ve seen a recent review somewhere please let me know :)

Try Best Bargain Books (States) on Amazon.  Look under “new” and you will find Star Vistas for around £6 with just over a couple of quid for postage from the States – amazing value for money.  Looks like they limit you to only 5 books though as I put in an order for 10 and they automatically cut it back to 5.  Never mind – just get all your friends and family to buy 5 as well for you :)

I have seen a big jump in UK sales of Star Vistas over the last couple of days – absolutely no idea why.  Maybe there’s been a review somewhere that I haven’t seen.  Whatever the reason – enjoy!!

Star Vistas is now below $7!  Even with postage from the States, you can now get Star Vistas for less than half the U.K. Amazon price – extraordinary!
