The chapter on VPSEC was worth the price of the book! Even after downloading the instruction manual for VSPEC and reading it I was still in the dark so Ken's chapter was very enlightening. I intend to set up my ST-80 and a low light video camera and do some more spectroscopy this summer (winter down there!). Thanks Ken it is an enjoyable and practical read!

Mine arrived this morning, ex-Springer. Only had time for a flick-through, but looks good!

Cheers -
