The Book Has Only Been Available A Short Time: The Early Feed Back Is Really Positive!
"Anyone who prepares for a solar eclipse will be way, way better prepared after reading your book" / LB "So far, it is an amazingly good book! Thanks!" / PS "What an accomplishment! My compliments for a job well done!!!" / PV
Now within 2 years of the 2024 U.S. total solar eclipse, I am happy to announce the release of my ebook, a comprehensive guide to preparing for Eclipse Day. The unique format of this book takes Eclipse Day and divides it into 28 separate essential elements, from arriving at your observation site to leaving at the end of the eclipse. Each of those elements is its own chapter where the information about the astronomy, the science, the observation, photography, and videography techniques are discussed together. The Appendix is organized more like a traditional eclipse book with the following chapters: Basic Eclipse Astronomy, Simplifying Eclipse Photography, Wide Angle Eclipse Photography, Video Recording Ideas, Mistakes I've Made, The Next 10 Total Eclipses.
The book contains 240 photos, 225 illustrations, 175 dialogue boxes, 12 image galleries, 10 embedded videos, 18 audio files.
If you read this book, $7.99, use my app, $1.99 and watch my YouTube videos, free, I guarantee it will be the best 10 dollars you can spend to get the most enjoyment out of this amazing eclipse!
The foreword is written by Bill Kramer a world-renowned eclipse chaser and eclipse educator.
