Hi Steve.
I just clicked your link above and it took me straight to the article.

Cheers, Graham.
Good. Somehow it takes me to the home page of their shopping site.

I have read several of her articles now, and I bought her book on my Kindle. It looks like a lot of helpful stuff. I'm too lazy to try to get to a place with a dark enough sky to apply a lot of what she says.

Yeah, finding somewhere to go without the light pollution would prove VERY difficult for me, but was wanting to give myself something for Xmas, that I could sit around and read while visiting during the "down times".....

Clicking on Steve’s link also took me to the Canon store. Her site is Jenniferwu.com. Her book is excellent.

Another excellent book is Glenn Randall’s Dusk to Dawn. He covers technical stuff in great depth and is also an amazing photographer. His and Wu’s are all you need.

Thank you for the suggestion!!!

I'll give it a look!!

A Kindle is pretty good for reading at night. (Tablets tire my eyes.)
I got the Kindle more for reading outside in sunlight where phones and tablets don't fare well, but am already enjoying using it indoors. The downside to reading a photo book on a Paperwhite is that the author is usually using color examples. So I've been reading on the Kindle and going back to the iPad to check out illustrations of interest. Their software takes me wherever I left off when using a different device, and that's nice.
