Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Digital SLR Astrophotography (Practical Amateur Astronomy) (Paperback)
I have just come back to astronomy after many years and things have certainly moved on. 40 years ago astrophotography was limited to those with access to the big 'scopes and decent developing systems. The digital camera has changed it all.
I am still working my way through this book, but I have tried some of the ideas Covington discusses....and they work.
The book is well written for both beginner and advanced. The explanations are clear and precise and they review different approaches. They also review why some of the cameras have developed their various formats and technologies.
The book is written around the use of a Cannon EOS and the Nikon, but do not let that put you off. For me it is great as I use an older Cannon 400D but the ideas can be applied to any camera.
The software section is also very good. How to handle digital images to get the best out of them, again with clear explanations.
If you are interested in trying astrophotography then buy this book.
