As the title suggests, the book highlights 100 astrophotographs, from the first successful image of the Moon captured in the mid-19th century through the discoveries by orbiting observatories and interplanetary probes. Essays on the groundbreaking science behind each discovery accompany each image. The authors have carefully selected their list of images to bring to the reader the most relevant photographic images of the science of astronomy. Springer, 171 pages, ISBN 978-3-319-20972-2.
