This is one of three books I purchased on the subject. The only colour is to be found on the covers as the illustrations and photos inside are all b&w. It's also a little dated, as quite a few pages are devoted to how to process and store film. However, it is well written and clear to understand and deals with all the subjects in depth.

An informative book which gives the beginner a good insight into not only the complexity of Astro Photography but also a lot of technical information which is written in a way that is easy to comprehend and a great reference work too.

A good compliment to other Astrophotography texts 28 May 2001
By Taras R. Hnatyshyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book I feel takes up topics that Michael Covington's "Astrophotography for the Amatuer" and Robert Reeve's "Wide-Field Astrophotography" leave off. The two afore-mentioned texts deal with the techniques, exposure times and equipment for astrophotography more deeply. "Practical Astrophotography" as the title suggests deals better with practical considerations: what to pack on you field trips, what you need for those foreign excursions, etc. This is what sets this book aside from the others. Sure, Jeffery Charles covers the basic techniques very competently, also, but doesn't go as deeply as the other two books. And he concentrates on film photography only.

Good starting book 12 April 2001
By Taz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good book to start with, especially with its tables of exposures and detailed background technical info on optics & photography. Good descriptions of simplified focal length, exposure, magnification and other calculations.
Absolutely no information on CCD photography.
The layout of the book is not very good for applying step-by-step approach for beginners, the process is mixed in with descriptions of technical background.

Not for digitals 5 Nov. 2007
By R. Diehl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Contrary to other reviews, this has nothing more than a paragraph here and there for digital SLR cameras.

General astrophotography info. Very general.
