The Astrophotography Manual - Chris Woodhouse
« on: 09:26:17, 23 August, 2015 »
Books on our subject tend to be either too basic or too advanced and are often of US authorship so tend to refer to things not useful to us in the uk. http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Astrophotography-Manual-Practical-Scientific/dp/113877684X is a good all round guide suitable for beginners or seasoned folk alike. It covers equipment, setup, acquisition and basic processing (including some good base information on using Pixinsight) and has a number of good practical examples covering these topics. What's more it is UK authored, so colour has a 'u' in it, is written in an easy to follow style and it respects our imaging conditions and targets we are likely to see. It has enough of the theory to be useful but not confound and makes a good reference guide.

Highly recommended!
