Light Pollution: Responses and Remedies by Bob Mizon

If you live in a city and are interested in astronomy, you're probably aware of what light pollution is and what it can do - how it affects human life, animals, and observing the sky.

This book introduces light pollution in a way that shows that you can actually deal with it, have light pollution in your back garden, and still have a menagerie of astronomical objects to observe if you so choose.

I found the latter part the most fascinating, because in a lot of cases light pollution is presented just as a nuisance (which it certainly is), than could and should be dealt with, but it doesn't show any way how to bypass it, Bob Mizon's "Light Pollution" does.

This book is a good eyeopener for an amateur who might be fed up with just observing the Moon and planets - read it, and you'll find out what else you can observe, or how you can change your observing equipment so that you can observe more objects.
