More About Becky Ramotowski

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! A dedication to observing - and luring the faintest dim fuzzies from the sky into her eyepiece - is what makes Becky Ramotowski tick. Her interest in astronomy began at an early age when her parents used to roust her and two younger sisters out of warm beds to watch meteor showers, lunar eclipses, and comets. Since then, she's never stopped looking at the sky. Recently she made history by spotting the planet Mercury during daylight without optical aid.Becky writes a weekly astronomy column for the San Antonio Express-News and has written for Night Sky magazine. She's also into astroimaging with film and digital cameras and has had photos published in Sky & Telescope and Night Sky. She does most of her skywatching from her home in New Mexico (where she lives with five telescopes and her husband Shane) but makes an annual pilgrimage to the dark skies of the Texas Star Party.

Got this book while I was helping my daughter work on her sky searcher badge for girl scouts. Great book for a beginner. My daughter read it cover to cover.

This is an excellent and complete survey of all the little tricks and big lessons that will turn a novice stargazer into a wise observer in no time. I've been an amateur astronomer for 50 years and it took many of those years for me to learn the secrets that are painlessly shared in this book. If you are interested in astronomy and want to quickly learn more, you can't beat this book for an amazing jump-start. Highly recommended!
