book Messier book

Received my signed hard copy of John Read and Chris Vaughan's book 110 Things To See With a Telescope. They are referring to the Charles Messier catalogue of deep sky objects.

Very exciting to have this at last in my mittens.

Really good to see it up close.

They did a fine job. I really like how they encourage note-taking and sketching.

It is a nice guide to the RASC Messier observing certificate program. 

I can only assume this will draw some new people to the RASC.

And I was pretty chuffed to see my name in the Acknowledgements. I was happy to help in a small way.
