The cover for A Breathtaking Window on the Universe

Here’s the cover design for “A breathtaking Window on the Universe: A guide to the Roque de Los Muchachos observatory”. I think it’s well up to Eco-geek‘s usual high standards.

The book should be on sale in the late summer or autumn of 2012.  It explains why the observatory is on La Palma and how a telescope and its instruments work, and gives details of each telescope, plus many anecdotes and over 60 photos.

 

You can read more about the island of La Palma and its remarkable skies at Star Island.
