There are some important eclipses coming up in the years ahead and the technology available to amateur astronomers is improving fast. Here is the ultimate, easy-to-read guide for eclipse-chasers. It includes everything an eclipse chaser needs to ensure that they have with them all the right equipment to observe or image a total solar eclipse. Coverage provides a checklist of where to go to see total solar eclipses for next 15 years. It provides a good feeling for what a trip abroad to an eclipse is like, including a humorous look at all that can and has gone wrong. Travel details are also included, essential in these days of high-security. The book also details a wealth of information about solar eclipses: how and why they happen, the physics of the Sun and solar system, and what can be observed only during a total eclipse.
