From the Publisher
Editors Note Ancient Light brings together a unique collection of fine images of star clusters, galaxies, nebulae and other such spectacular phenomena captured on glass plates by some of the world's finest optical telescopes. Astronomer David Malin outlines the history and importance of photographing the night sky, and describes how very long exposures taken with a telescope reveal stars and distant galaxies too faint to be seen by the naked eye.
