Practical Guide to Astrophotography is a complete guide to amateur astrophotography, from planning and purchasing equipment through to making high-quality images. This book contains information that would otherwise take a long time and a lot of patience to learn.
It covers the commercial "hot products", comparing their features and ensuring that the reader chooses the best equipment - within his budget - for his chosen area. It covers the most common telescopes, software and cameras used for astrophotography by amateur astronomers, and describes step-by-step how to get from "dreaming about it" through buying the materials and building the system, to obtaining the best possible images. The combination of the product mix and practical processes covers a very large amateur astronomer user-base.
This is not only a guide to setting up, it’s also a book that readers will frequently take with them in the field to help them on their journey to make images of the stars. It’s targeted at providing practical knowledge and leverages "lessons learned" in actual field operations involved in astrophotography. This comprehensive book fills in all the blanks that are not fully covered in magazines or (multiple) other books.
