"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

The balance of real-life experience and theory of astrophotography presented in this book is fantastic.
Clearly years of experience shared so openly means it does take reading again and again - but that's no bad thing.
I agree with people on the forums when they advise this as one of the first things to buy if you're interested in astrophotography.
What a brilliant reference.

This book was recommended by numerous people at stargazerslounge as an answer to many questions that beginners have when starting out in astrophotography.
This book answered all my questions and some I didn't even know I should ask.
Couple a great book with fantastic service (I ordered the book on Fri afternoon and it arrived with Saturdays post) and I felt review recommendation was needed.
