Deep Space

The Furthest Reaches of Our Universe

by Robert Harvery



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Travelling from the edge of our Solar System, through the Milky Way and to the outer edges of the observable universe, Deep Space is a spectacular photographic guide to galaxies, nebulae, supernova, clusters, black holes, and quasars.

Learn about the birth of stars in our own galaxy, planets beyond our own solar system, when they were first discovered and how we have managed to photograph these places. Ranging from the Magellanic Clouds within the Milky Way to stellar life cycles, from other spiral galaxies such as the Andromeda Galaxy, to the Sombrero Galaxy, and from nebulae such as the Pillars of Creation to black and white dwarfs, this is accessibly written for the general reader to grasp the science and magnitude of deep space. Featuring 200 outstanding color photographs and expert captions, Deep Space is most certainly out of this world.

Robert Harvey has a degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, is a Chartered Natural Scientist, and an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society. He chases elusive astronomical phenomena around the world and leads landscape astrophotography tours and courses in Britain and overseas. He is author of Night Sky and is the founder of Natural World Photography, based in Wiltshire, UK.
