Product description

Review

'… the author's friendly, authoritative style makes the book a splendid read … This is an excellent introduction to astronomical imaging with many beautiful colour pictures, is suitable for beginners and advanced photographers. Highly recommended!' Nik Szymanek, Astronomy Now

'A much-welcome second edition is now upon us. The material in this new book is fully updated with the latest techniques, films, and equipment that amateurs are using in today's' sky-shooting endeavours. The text remains well suited for both inexperienced as well as moderately advanced amateur astrophotographers. And even the pros might pick up a few tips from this extensive work … a real pleasure to read.' Chris Schur, Sky and Telescope

'A more comprehensive book would be difficult to imagine without the readability suffering greatly … it will serve you till it crumbles to dust.' Gnomon

'It was 15 years ago Michael Covington first published Astrophotography for the Amateur, and during the following years it became a bible for the uninitiated astrophotographer and even for those with appreciable experience. This is a superb reference guide for exposure tables, film data, photographic filters, information for further reading including Internet sources and contacts for dealers.' Adrian Catterall, Webb Society Deep-Sky Observer
