Named for Japan’s highly talented and renowned astrophotographer, Akira Fujii of Koriyama. He edited the quarterly magazine Hoshi No Techou (star handbook) and is the author of a beautifully illustrated series of popular astronomy books for young people. Fujii has fostered public awareness of astronomy through television broadcasts from his Chiro Observatory in Shirakawa, Fukushima prefecture, and he toured Japan in 1986, offering the public views of Halley’s Comet with a trailer-mounted 60-cm reflector. Fujii is best known outside of Japan for his stunning celestial photographs, a hallmark of which is technical perfection. (M 22829)
