From this book you’ll find out all the basics of astrophotography. Some of the not so basic information will be overcast by the shadow of the pretty pictures and an optimistic outlook that if you’d just have the necessary equipment you could start doing it too.

It didn’t seem comprehensive enough to be the only book an aspiring astrophotographer would need to read, but it would work well as an introduction to the methods and subjects – using a webcam, dslr or ccd camera; taking pictures of constellations, planets and deep sky objects.

It didn’t make me fall asleep nor would it make me want to sleep on a dark clear night.
