As with any endeavor of this magnitude, I owe much to friends and colleagues. ^

I wish to thank all of my fellow amateur astronomers who have so graciously contributed images for the illustrations in this book, including Donald C. Parker, Ed Grafton, P. Clay Sherrod, Eric Ng, Damian Peach, Christopher Go, Cristian Fattinnanzi, Brady Richardson, Trudy LeDoux, and Dave Eisfeldt.

I am also grateful to the editor Mike Inglis and to the publishers at Springer for the invitation to write this book, and for their patience in allowing the time I believe was necessary to make it a good one.

I greatly appreciate my colleagues, the staff of the Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers, for their support and friendship. Likewise, my friends in the Central Texas Astronomical Society have given me great moral support and encouragement.

Finally, I am deeply grateful to Amy Simon-Miller, Glenn Orton, and Scott C. Sheppard for their assistance in gathering papers and materials, and for many, many useful discussions. Their support and friendship has been invaluable to me.
