Not for a Novice DSLR owner or new to Astrophotography,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Digital SLR Astrophotography (Practical Amateur Astronomy) (Paperback)
I'm new to DSLR Camera's and to Astrophotography and was expecting a book full of useful tips about how to set up my camera how take pictures of objects in the sky. There are some helpful hints and tips but not enough to satisfy this hungry novice. A lot of the book is about technical issues on the camera, lens and how the sensor works and the software available to work on your pictures once taken. I wanted more basic stuff and this book did not satisfy this need. Its more for the experienced camera user and astrophotograher in my opinion. Example from the book about focussing the camera say's its frustrating for those new to the hobby but offers very little help. The book is expensive for what it offers.
So it will now be added to my shelf of books only to come out once I've mastered my camera and to some extent had some experience of taking astro pictures.
