Written for the first-time solar eclipse viewer, the 2017 Great American Solar Eclipse Primer offers topics and tips on viewing and imaging the eclipse without a telescope. The book was written by Anthony Galvan III (Tony) whose photographs and technical illustrations have been published by Astronomy and Sky & Telescope magazines.
In the publication, he demonstrates how you don’t need a telescope and mount to image the eclipse. Included in this introductory edition are tips on how to image a total solar eclipse, basic equipment needed for safe solar viewing and an overview of what to expect during the total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.
The eBook is priced at $4.99 and is available on Amazon here.
