This is supported by reportage photography of professional and amateur astronomy. These photographs range from academic research and observation through to the stargazing public, capturing a truly wonderful journey that the scientists and the community are travelling.

Max Alexander is a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and has had a lifelong interest in astronomy. In the course of taking these photographs across the UK, he has got to know well the community of astronomers, in one of the few sciences where amateurs make a valuable contribution.
