Since the advent of astronomical CCD imaging it has been possible for amateurs to produce images of a quality that was attainable only by universities and professional observatories just a decade ago. However, astronomical CCD cameras are still very expensive, and technology has now progressed so that digital cameras – the kind you use on holiday – are more than capable of photographing the brighter astronomical objects, notably the Moon and major planets.

Tony Buick has worked for two years on the techniques involved, and has written this illustrated step-by-step manual for anyone who has a telescope (of any size) and a digital camera. The color images he has produced – there are over 300 of them in the book – are of breathtaking quality.

His book is more than a manual of techniques (including details of how to make a low-cost DIY camera mount) and examples; it also provides a concise photographic atlas of the whole of the nearside of the Moon – with every image made using a standard digital camera – and describes the various lunar features, including the sites of manned and robotic landings.

Patrick Moore’s Practical Astronomy Series. For other titles published in this series, go to ww. pringer. How to Photograph the Moon and Planets with Your Digital Camera. This book concentrates upon photographs of the Moon, and to a lesser extent the Sun and planets, but the methods can well be extended to deep space objects such as nebulae and galaxies. There is a tremendous amount of scope.

His book is more than a manual of techniques (including details of how to make a low-cost DIY camera mount) and . It shows how anyone can take an astronomical photo with a family digital camera and a little ingenuity and imagination.

The title of this book is very misleading for the reader and interested buyer. The first two-thirds of this book consists of some basic astronomy information and the history of the moon and many pages of the moon's geography. The author only focuses on photography within the last third of the book and even then he never really gets into any substance about the techniques of astrophotography. The images are really poor and I suppose works since the author only concentrates on doing astrophotography on a shoestring budget. I don't see how this publication is beneficial to any amateur astronomer or astrophotographer. It is not worth the money. There are numerous books (many I own) on astrophotography and digital astrophotography that really are jammed-packed with quality photos and techniques. Also, the few methods that the author's does touch upon in this book seem very anchient. The author donates 150 pages of this book (out of 254) alone to the moon and it is all about its history, formation and pages upon pages of moon atlas pics. I highly recommend that the buyer first read and review this book before purchasing. Very disappointing!

I was so pleased to know that such a book as this was available to help amateur astronomers new to astrophotography. I am now enjoying the easy to read introductions to each sky target and using the simple but necessary instructions to make the photography possible. Also very pleasing is that the superb images illustrated can be very closely matched by my efforts after reading this book. How refreshing not to have to wade through off-putting text and theory in order to capture beautiful pictures immediately with readily available and inexpensive equipment. I thoroughly recommend this work to anyone eager to begin taking sky pictures, especially of the Moon.

This book shows that you don't need to spend thousands of dollars to be able to take pictures of astronomical objects.

The book is an encouragement to amateur astronomers or someone with only a passing interest in the night sky, to go out and take photographs of the the Moon and planets. It shows how anyone can take an astronomical photo with a family digital camera and a little ingenuity and imagination.

The book also doubles as a photographic atlas to the Moon with detailed notes on what can be seen in the photographs.

I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the night sky or photography.

This book is just OK for anyone who knows absolutely nothing about telescopes or astrophotography. Even then too much is devoted to lunar geography which does not help anyone take photographs. If you know some basic knowledge then this book is not for you. Totally failed to float my boat. This one is being returned to the seller.
