Ticket to the Moon

I was so pleased to know that such a book as this was available to help amateur astronomers new to astrophotography. I am now enjoying the easy to read introductions to each sky target and using the simple but necessary instructions to make the photography possible. Also very pleasing is that the superb images illustrated can be very closely matched by my efforts after reading this book. How refreshing not to have to wade through off-putting text and theory in order to capture beautiful pictures immediately with readily available and inexpensive equipment. I thoroughly recommend this work to anyone eager to begin taking sky pictures, especially of the Moon.

A practical guide to astrophotography on a shoestring

This book shows that you don't need to spend thousands of dollars to be able to take pictures of astronomical objects. The book is an encouragement to amateur astronomers or someone with only a passing interest in the night sky, to go out and take photographs of the the Moon and planets. It shows how anyone can take an astronomical photo with a family digital camera and a little ingenuity and imagination. The book also doubles as a photographic atlas to the Moon with detailed notes on what can be seen in the photographs. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the night sky or photography.
