As an astro-imager, this is an honor beyond any other publication (internet or hard print) in the world.
The writers of the book series reached out to me and asked to use my Sadr image in the 8th (and final) volume of their book!!!! I couldn't believe it - and at first thought the book I received in the mail last week was a Christmas gift from a friend ... until I read the enclosed note. It was a complimentary copy!!!
I am still stunned. What a beautiful end to 2020!!!
Here is a link to my post on Twitter (as I am using my laptop right now as I re-build my main home machine - starting with motheboard):
