27 of 28 people found the following review helpful By D. Graham VINE VOICE on 20 Feb 2008
Format: Paperback
Great starting point for anyone interested in starting up with astrophotography. This book starts off (as you'd expect) with the basics - what to look for in a telescope, then moves onto sections on how to take photos with everything from a digital compact, a webcam(!), a dSLR then finally an astronomical CCD camera.
Each section is further broken down into the same subsections: what kind of photos you can take with the particular type of camera, pros and cons of using it, buying tips, how to take the photos and finally how to process them.

This book is packed with excellent reference photos, and covers the basics of astrophotography in a lot of detail, and finishes off with an extensive list of links to appropriate software, astronomy links, camera and telescope manufacturers, and books. A must-buy for anyone considering taking photos of the night sky. Be warned though, once you've read it, you'll be outside on many a cold night!

This is an excellent book for someone starting out in digtial astrophotgraphy, who is undoubtedly the target for this book. The authors style is clear, simple and straight forward. They do not assume any knowledge of the subject instead set out clearly the advantages and disadvantages of the webcam,digital compact and digital single lens reflex cameras and of the CCD camera. For each category the authors describe how to use the camera to its best advantage -how to set it up, attach it to the telescope, exposures to use and very usefully how to process the images you obtain. The book has an assosciated website from which the reader can download example astrophotographs on which to practice the image processing techniques.
If you are already experienced in digital astrophotography this book will not add a lot to your store of knowledge but then you are not its target audience.
For the novice to astrophotography though this is a thoroughly recommended book and will give you an excellent start in this fascinating, not difficult and very satisfying field - you can at last share some of your wonder at the cosmos with family and friends.

This is an excellent book and covers all the necessary things needed when starting out in this field. Notice I said when "starting out". After I read it, I doubt that I will go back to it a great deal for reference, as it is a bit thin on the ground in that department. There seems to be a lack also of examples and diagrams, compared with a book like Covington's. Having said that it's very prettily put together with a ton of beautiful astro images (in colour).

Format: Paperback
This book is a good introduction in the field of astrophotography. But that is all. If you need a deeper analysis an almost all subjects dealt in this book, you need another book. It is good for the newcomer. It does not add anything to anybody who has read or studied relevant issues e.g. from the Internet.

A very interesting book, but too brief.
I expected more on advanced processing techniques, that was the reason that i got it.
