    These photgraphs are quite literally taken from all over the place I mean all over the galaxy of places all over the galaxy and many from planet earth of the sky from planet earth Anyone will get a thrill from these photgraphs, they really are quite stunning and the reproduction is very good It is marked at 25, though I bet you can get it cheaper Even at full price, this is really great value for just flipping through and going Wow not just once but again and again.There is an appendix of thumb nail size photos at the back, so you can see something that you like and go to that page.What did I like page 26 Fomalhaut, taken from the dolomites stunning Then page 84 Castlerigg stone circle with the aurora borealis as bckground awe inspiring To name but two There is a deeply spiritual side to these photographs at least as I see it Well worth buying as a present for yourself or for another.

    I do love looking at the and have a good knowledge of the various space programmes that have occurred and the general venture into space I am quite interested to know how it looks somewhere else and the beauty of the universe.The book cover to this looks a bit uninspiring I flicked a page open from the books and was presented with a stunning photo of the moon surface I turned to another page and was presented with another astonishing photo of the sun This proved to be very interesting, I read detail of the book What becomes apparent is that a huge number of individuals have been taking photos of night sky and working hours, weeks, months, years for that one photo There is huge effort gone into this and every picture has a story There is some explanation of what you are looking at and a often a additional comment by the individual who took the shot To get all this in one bound volume is staggering good value to my mind I find this interesting, intriguing, inspiring and for the asking price is exceptional good value, I love this book, its a bargain.

    This is a beautiful book, beautifully printed, on high quality glossy paper and neatly bound in a good stiff cover.Awesome is an over used adjective, but these photographs are truly worthy of it Taken from all over the planet, picture after picture shows the universe in all of its majesty, the moon, the planets and the galaxies This is one of those books in which you find something new every time you look through it.What is so impressive is that the submissions demonstrate not only the astonishing knowledge and vision of the entrants, but their amazing technical photographic skills.One feature that I really like is the index Instead of a printed list there are thumbnails images of the photographs with a brief description and the page on which it can be found.I would recommend this book.
