If you are considering CCD astronomy imaging, or if your images are not all you hoped for, This book is invaluable.
Ron Wodaski writes in simple clear language, but does not shirk from using (and describing) technical terms. Within the first 20 pages of this book, I had learned the real definitions of several terms commonly used, but not explained, by other publications.
Refreshingly, the book uses plain English to describe in detail how to get the best out of your CCD/Telescope set up: if you are only at the stage of considering such purchases, Mr. Wodaski gives invaluable advice which could save any reader a small fortune by ensuring matched equipment is purchased first time.
The book is divided into chapters, each of which address an aspect of CCD imaging, ranging from a simple introduction, to advanced CCD image manipulation techniques.
As a bonus, the purchase of the book also gives the buyer a subscription to Mr. Wodaski's web site, which contains updates to the book, CCD images, some in colour, of the pictures contained in the publication, and several utility programmes which are extremely useful to the CCD astronomer, as well as tutorials, discussion groups and more!
My only critisism is that all the book's images are in black and white, which does detract a little from them.
If you are going to buy a book on CCD imaging, this is the one to get!
I have bought many books on CCD imaging - I wish I had seen this book first - I could have saved a great deal of money

I bought this for my husband who has tried for years to set up his telescope to photograph galaxies - with this book he says it won't be a problem - said he wished he'd had it long ago!

This book gives an excellent overview of all you need to know in taking and processing your astro photos. An excellent reference book.

I needed information on how to go about taking deep sky images using my 110 refractor and my new ccd camera.
I looked on Amazon for a book on Astro imaging and came across The New CCD Astronomy book by Ron Wodaski and am I glad I did it covers all I needed to know about CCD imaging. Once you pick it up to read you will not want to put it down again.

This is a very complete guide to CCD astrophotography and highly recommended for novices and experts alike.

After having bought another book on astrophotography which was very disappointing (sorry Sir Patrick)...this was a breath of fresh air...hopefully with clear skies!

Get it and start learning.

This book is more about signal processing and titivating photographs. Disappointing, little about using cameras with astronomical telescopes, equipment comparisons and taking good photographs.

Great book. Written for the newbies and succeeds well. One of the better books on the market that does not assume you have a degree in Astro Physics
