This book is a complete wast of money. There is nothing between the covers that helps with the subject what so ever. It basically tells you that yes you can take photos of the moon and stuff, thats it, no hints on camers setup etc.
Dont waste your money.

As I am not as yet an astrophotographer, I can't really say how good this book is: but having a quick look through it seems to give a good grounding to a beginner!

Informative, but not as useful as I had hoped 29 Jan 2014
By Heather Gould - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I did enjoy reading this book, as I'm trying to get in to astrophotography. The author provides some good information early on, like a couple of specs for a decent telescope, but I didn't take much more away from it besides that. There is a detailed discussion of how to adjust two webcams to work with a telescope, yet the author admits these webcams are both no longer in production (I think it was both... could be just one). That seemed to me like a strange thing to put such significant focus on, especially since it's not guaranteed that even most of the audience would be capable of making such adjustments (I don't trust myself to open up electronics and solder them), and even if they were, it's unlikely that the instructions provided will work for many webcams. The modifications were written for very specific hardware. I became a little overwhelmed at that point and stopped reading any further. I do think many people will find this book very useful for its price, based on what I did get through. I think for the price, it's worth giving it a try, regardless of the other stuff I previously said or even what other reviewers have said. Give it a shot.

Datede Data 27 Mar 2014

Referenced equipment dates and 35 mm film canisters no longer available as we all use digital cameras! Doesn't make me all that interested in the suggested hacks on video cams.

Way to general to be useful 2 Feb 2014
By Damien Leuba - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While his book clearly say it's not going to great depth, it is so much an overview that is not ver useful. All the info can be found in very general internet articles.
