"Confronted by [modern] advances, amateur astronomers – the driving force behind the study of the heavens for much of history – have had to reinvent themselves. Today's 'amateur' is, in fact, a serious professional armed with the latest tools of optics and computers to capture, analyse, catalogue, and disseminate information and images of the night sky (and day sky!). They complement, rather than compete with, the work of major observatories and research scientists. Some areas of study, such as the search for near Earth objects – asteroids and comets – still rely heavily on the efforts of dedicated amateurs. Dr Greg Parker is one such serious amateur." Sir Arthur C. Clarke

"The wonders of the Universe are here! Enjoy!" Dr. Brian May

"This is a book deserving an honoured place every scientific library, amateur or professional." Sir Patrick Moore
