Working from a pirated early manuscript of the text, I am having every word, typos included, tattooed over my entire body.

Maybe a star will be named after Bill or a crater on the Moon?

Thanks.

Hope you all find the book has a little bit of everything for your interest level: a small bit of history, basics on construction and optics, basics on optimizing use with the scope, overview of the market offerings by AFOV class, then individual data tables for over 200 new and sought after used lines. But the two most fun parts of the book for me, is the chapter of essays on advice from amateurs around the world (including many CNers contributions), and the many photos from amateurs of their gear to highlight each specific eyepiece line. So lots of eye candy Also had a number of vendors contribute as well with photos and a lot of really nice help from TeleVue related to their eyepieces.
