Short biography
Chris Kitchin has written or contributed to over two dozen books, and has published more than 500 articles in the astronomical journals and magazines. He also appears regularly on television, including many appearances on BBC TV’s Sky at Night. His works for Springer includes, A Photo Guide to the Constellations: A Self-Teaching Guide to Finding Your Way Around the Heavens (1997), Solar Observing Techniques (2001), Illustrated Dictionary of Practical Astronomy (2002), and most recently Galaxies in Turmoil (2007). In his ‘day job’ Chris is Emeritus Professor of Astronomy at the University of Hertfordshire, where until ten years ago he was also Head of Physics and Astronomy, and Director of the University Observatory. Like many other astronomers Chris’s interest in the subject started early. At the age of fourteen, he constructed an 8-inch Newtonian after spending hundreds of hours grinding and polishing the main mirror from scratch. Despite using some of the largest telescopes in the world since then, Chris still enjoys just ‘gazing at the heavens’ - though nowadays it’s through a Zeiss Maksutov telescope.
