A Decade in Stargazing Book by Kevin Quinn
(80 Pages. Paperback)

Based on the author’s detailed stargazing notes, compiled over a ten year period, and told through his personal connection with twelve constellations, A decade in stargazing contains a host of astronomical observations and impressions of a variety of objects, as well as insights and leaps of the imagination through time and space.

With details of the author’s experiences whilst out stargazing – funny, moving, and even ‘hold your breath scary’ – alongside autobiographical asides and anecdotes, A decade in stargazing. part night sky guide, part deeply personal memoir, is an entertaining and informative look at one decade in stargazing … Oh, and there’s an important life lesson involving a bear …

Born in Northern Ireland in the early 60s, Kevin Quinn was fascinated by all things space from an early age. Although inspired by the Apollo moon landings, and a regular viewer of the BBC’s Sky at Night television programme, it was only in his mid-thirties that he got his first telescope (cheap and very wobbly), and a pair of (charity shop/thrift store) binoculars.

Put off and disappointed by the poor quality views with this first equipment a long hiatus followed, before he finally invested in some decent equipment, and since doing so, he hasn’t looked back.
