ASTRONOMY MANUAL: Haynes Publishing

I am thrilled to update that the Astronomy Manual, published by Haynes in October 2010, went to a First Reprint in January 2011 and a Second reprint in April 2011. As always, an enormous thank you must go to all those who enabled a dream to come true: Keith Cooper, Dr Stuart Clark, Mark Hughes, Dr Brian May, Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS, Derek Smith, Nik Szymanek, to name but a few.

The book is now listed at No6 on 'The Definitive Astronomer's Book Collection for 2011' by Martin Peston on Amazon.co.uk.
