Customer Review

on 8 March 2003
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
