An informative book which gives the beginner a good insight into not only the complexity of Astro Photography but also a lot of technical information which is written in a way that is easy to comprehend and a great reference work too.
This is one of three books I purchased on the subject. The only colour is to be found on the covers as the illustrations and photos inside are all b&w. It's also a little dated, as quite a few pages are devoted to how to process and store film. However, it is well written and clear to understand and deals with all the subjects in depth.
