Product description

Review

'Ian Morison's new amateur astronomy guide is a rare gem. The book tackles the major aspects of our hobby with clear and insightful writing. His experience both as an astronomer and an observer shine through. Personally I found the photos and sections on astro-imaging extremely helpful and refreshing. Several times his advice prompted me to call up a DSLR image on my computer and start working on it in Photoshop following his clever suggestions. Bravo!' Stephen James O'Meara, Astronomy magazine columnist and author of the Deep-Sky Companions series

'An Amateur's Guide to Observing and Imaging the Heavens is a book I would greatly recommend. It covers many key points in detail, in what can be a bewildering subject to those starting out. Topics from telescope choice and calibration to image processing with Photoshop are all covered in detail. This book will serve anyone as a good overall guide on modern amateur astrophotography.' Damian Peach, astrophotographer (damianpeach.com)

'Morison brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this book with a detailed level of practical knowledge on the use of observing equipment.' BBC Sky at Night Magazine

'This is the best guide to observing and imaging that I have seen for a long time … I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I think that even very experienced amateurs will learn something new …' Kieran McGrath, SCS Astro

'… contains one of the most accessible and informed reviews of currently available telescope systems that I have seen in any recent book.' Nick James, The Observatory

Book Description

Written by an experienced astronomer and educator, this one-stop reference bridges the gap between books for beginners in amateur astronomy and the more advanced books on specialised topics. It provides extensive information about observing and imaging equipment and shows how to best use them.
