For anybody new to Astrophotography the hobby can seem bewildering and they may fall by the wayside before even starting this fantastic hobby as they just think it is too hard for them.
This book goes through all the terms used in AP and all the different types of equipment you may need stating what really is the bare minimum to more advanced equipment you probably will acquire at a later stage.
I urge anybody starting out to buy this book before purchasing any equipment whatsoever and read (more than once) from cover to cover. Its all in plain English anybody can understand, nothing is too technical, and so maybe not a book for anyone already successful in AP, and so you understand just exactly what is involved and gives you the knowledge needed to go ahead and acquire the correct equipment to start out in AP without wasting what can amount to thousands of pounds (or Euros / Dollars etc).

Just read the first chapters, very informative and good advice on equipment for astro photography. I use Canon DSLRs and have not done any astrophotography yet.

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.

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!
make every photon count, BRILLIANT !

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.
