Travelling from the edge of our Solar System, through the Milky Way and to the outer edges of the observable universe, Deep Space is a spectacular photographic guide to galaxies, nebulae, supernova and clusters. Learn about the birth of stars in our own galaxy, planets beyond our own solar system, when they were first discovered and how we have managed to photograph these places.
Ranging from the Magellanic Clouds within the Milky Way to stellar life cycles, from other spiral galaxies such as the Andromeda Galaxy, to the Sombrero Galaxy, and from nebulae such as the Pillars of Creation to black and white dwarfs, this is accessibly written for the general reader to grasp the science and magnitude of deep space.
Featuring 200 outstanding images, Deep Space is an exhilarating journey to the outermost reaches of the Universe.

He chases elusive astronomical phenomena around the world and leads landscape astrophotography tours and courses in Britain and overseas.

This is a gorgeous collection of deep space pictures packed with fascinating facts! My cublings enjoyed looking at the pictures as well, and it sparked many questions about what’s beyond the blue marble we call home. In fact, we even dug out my telescope and put it to use again. Perfect for any and all space enthusiasts.
