'… 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
First published in 1999, this much expanded and updated edition of the best-selling handbook Astrophotography for the Amateur provides a complete guide to taking pictures of stars, galaxies, the Moon, the Sun, comets, meteors and eclipses. It includes new chapters on computer image processing and CCD imaging, choosing cameras and telescopes, the latest films, and hundreds of new photographs.

I have to say that I was completely disappointed with this book. It's major focus was film rather than digital photography. It was like reading a history of photography rather than a practical, useful guide..
Highly overpriced. In my opinion a waste of money!
