"StarGaze" brings the beauty and majesty of the universe to your home theater, direct from the Hubble Space Telescope. With over an hour of the most incredible images of the universe you'll ever see, from gaseous clouds to more than 200 other astronomical objects, plus Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound music from popular new age group 2002, "StarGaze" will quickly become a favorite in your DVD collection.
It looks like all that money NASA spent on the Hubble Space Telescope was worth it after all--at least from an aesthetic standpoint. Stargaze: Hubble's View of the Universe captivates the viewer with stunningly high-definition color images of galaxies, nebulae, and heavenly bodies closer to home. Each shot pans and lingers over the richly colored pictures as unobtrusive narration in English, French, German, or Spanish explains the history of the Hubble mission, its targets, and what we've learned so far. The music by 2002 is harmless and quiet, though viewers pathologically averse to New Age will scramble for the audio control. Including screensavers and Web features, Stargaze will keep spaceheads happy and entranced for hours, and convert the unbelievers. --Rob Lightner

I agree with nearly everything included in the other reviews here. Quick points:
-- excellent selection of images and arranged well
-- on-screen image quality is excellent
-- first rate sound track to accompany
-- "camera" work less than ideal, many shots are zoomed in too much and leave you with little appreciation for the context of the detailed views
-- the narrative is actually a very limited amount of on screen text which just whetted my appetite for some real explanation
In my opinion, this DVD should have included the option to have far more extensive explanations either in voice or text form. With that it would get 5 stars.
Whoever designed and approved the narrative accompanying the first part of this DVD was not mentally connected to the main thrust of the wondrous video--the glorious and magical cosmos exposed. In spite of this major failure, I'm glad I have this DVD tucked away in my rack. (Suggestion. Turn off the narrative until (about halfway along) it begins to discuss what you're seeing.
