More About Sue French & Richard Tresch Fienberg

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! It's unusual to find an accomplished stargazer who not only knows the sky intimately but also has encyclopedic command of the underlying astrophysics. Sue French has gained a worldwide following in both capacities. In the mid-1990s her writing skills came to the attention of the editors at Sky & Telescope magazine, and soon her observing column ? Small-Scope Sampler ? began appearing on a monthly basis. She also writes a star-hopping column for S&T's sister publication, Night Sky. This self-proclaimed ?Queen of the Darkness? currently owns seven telescopes, ranging in aperture from 4 to 15 inches. And when the Moon or clouds interfere, she likes to settle in for the night with some good science-fiction reading.

Sue French currently resides in the state of New York.

Reviews - What do customers think about Celestial Sampler: 60 Small-Scope Tours for Starlit Nights (Stargazing)?

Very easy to read and understand  Aug 28, 2008
Sue is actually my aunt (through marriage) and we received a copy of her book as a gift from our grandparents (her parents) before it was even released for sale. We were never big star gazers but after reading her book we really found the book easy to read and came to realize all that we have been missing! Can't say enough great things about our Aunt and all her talent!! She is truly an amazing author and person!
New to stargazing  Aug 3, 2008
I recently got a telescope and purchased several books to help me get started viewing the night sky. This book is the one that I use the most. I find the information it contains very useful and the star hopping is a great help in locating objects that I want to view.
great item to take on vacation  Jul 21, 2008
I like the columns. I travel frequently. A comfortably sized easy guide for binoculars seemed the right thing.

When your child asks for a telescope, this would be one of the two books to accompany that first optical instrument.
Celestial Sampler  Mar 15, 2008
Visual equivalent to a sampler box of chocolates; every bite is a delight! This guide is a must for those who observe with a small telescope.
Nice Resource  Aug 26, 2007
A good resource. I like to use it in conjunction with a Planosphere. I have not explored every "sample" in the book yet, but in general it is a good book to use and allows you to explore the heavens.
