The Atlas of the Galilean Satellites is now a mere weeks away from publication.
It should be available (at least in the UK!) during the latter half of May, 2010.
I have posted a blog that introduces the Atlas and shows some of its features,
how to order it, and other interesting details (including errors, when they are
reported). Just thought you would like to know!

enjoy

My book is foolproof (!?!) and incapable of error . . . .

Just define truth/grammar by what is in your book.

I already ordered the Atlas on Amazon last December. Should get it on June. I'm really looking forward to get it. It seems really fantastic !! Thanks DrShank for your great work !! Do you expect to create also an Atlas of the Cronian Moons, or even an Atlas of the Uranian/Neptunian Moons ?
It would make a great collection.
Thanks again.
Marc.

Belated congrats, Paul; gonna order up the Atlas presently! My wife is becoming interested in planetary science, and Io & Europa really grab her attention; this should be a nice tool to further spark her interest as well as something for me to drool over! smile.gif

Best to wait for the laminated edition, I think, if you're prone to drooling, nprev!

I don't know if anyone's noticed, but Amazon now have a "Look Inside!" preview of Paul's atlas:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0521868351/

It really looks superb!

Thanks for the information! yes i should have updated the post here that the book is now off the printer and being cut and
prepped for the stock shells at Cambridge by the end of the month. yeah! apparently it is also an eBook so you have your
choice of format.
i will post some new videos and such as soon as it hits the streets.

Yeah, after seeing how compressed the artwork is in the last few ebooks I've purchased (seriously, I could barely make out the maps in the WWI book I just got finished reading...), I will definitely get the physical version.

E-formats definitely have their limitations. Multi-page electrical schematics also don't work well at all.

According to the US version of Amazon.com the book will not be available here until Sept 30. This certainly reinforces plans I already had to travel to the UK in late August!

I doubt I will find it in the bookstore at Heathrow, but would any bookstores in central London carry it? since I have already read the last Harry Potter book I need something to read on the flight back to Los Angeles. smile.gif

Try Foyles on Charing Cross Road - once the world's largest bookshop in terms of shelf space.
Last time I was there I spent two hours or so browsing....
If you get the chance to visit Oxford, I'd highly recommend Blackwells as a bookshop too.

Happy hunting!

The Waterstones bookstore on Gower St (adjacent to UCL in central London) has an excellent astronomy/astrophysics section down in the basement. Always worth a browse.
