About the Authors
  • Unique among amateur astronomy books, The Cambridge Eclipse Photography Guide describes everything a viewer needs to know to observe and photograph the solar and lunar eclipses in the 1990s. It gives maps and descriptions of where and how to watch forthcoming eclipses, with particular attention to two popularly-awaited solar eclipses: an annular eclipse (where a ring of sunlight is visible around the moon) that will cross the United States in 1994, and a total eclipse that will pass over Europe in 1999. The authors also describe past eclipse expeditions, capturing the excitement of the observers. Well illustrated with color and black-and-white eclipse photographs, The Cambridge Eclipse Photography Guide will be an invaluable handbook for those who wish to witness--with safety and understanding--one of nature's most spectacular events. Michael A. Covington is the author of Astrophotography for the Amateur (Cambridge University Press, 1985, 1991). Jay M. Pasachoff, is the author of one of the bestselling astronomy books of all time--Contemporary Astronomy (1989)--as well as many popular Peterson Guides on astronomical subjects.
