"Aimed at the beginner to Deep Sky astro-photography, new concepts are explained in plain terms ensuring the reader develops an understanding of the equipment and its use. Advice is based on tried and tested methods aimed at producing acceptable results early on by drawing on my own experiences as a beginner and those whom I have assisted in the past. The logical progression of an imaging session and subsequent post processing of the images is explored in depth in an easy to read and understandable style with numerous illustrations and examples to lead the beginner through to more advanced topics."  Steve Richards - Chanctonbury Observatory

"There are many books about astronomical photography, but none quite like this one – at least as far as I know. What Steve Richards has done is to begin at the very beginning. He assumes that his reader has absolutely no prior knowledge, and guides him (or her!) gently through to the stage of being able to take really good photographs. Steve Richards has therefore plugged a notable hole in the literature, and I can appreciate this particularly because I have always been a visual observer rather than a photographer." Patrick Moore

Excellent starters guide to imaging

It does exactly what it says, and assumes little or no prior knowledge of imaging. I found the first half on equipment very helpful.

A must read for newcomers to Astrophotography

This is a great book. All the questions I was asking myself are in fact quite easily found in this little book, and quite well explained. The index is a valuable tool for this purpose. I think I will read it from cover to cover (did I mention that it is very well written!) and memorize a lot of the material!

Having recently got into astrophotography I seen this recommended on all the forums, gave it a shot and it is pretty much a book going into detail from start to finish on how to tske deep sky images, including details on different ways to do things. Well worth it.

Great book
Wednesday, 17 June 2020  | 

Just getting into Astrophotography, I have read forums, watched YouTube channels, researched a range of equipment, and listened to opinion for a couple of months now. Iím half way through this book and it clicks everything into to place. To topic is vast as you know, or will discover, but ĎMaking Every Photon Countí describes the beginners best way through the maze in a straight forward manner. It has helped my decide and define my order for my first deep sky setup, and also understand it a lot better. 4 stars because the font could be a little larger.
