Dark Art or Magic Bullet?
A Beginner's Guide to Deep Sky Image Processing
By Steve Richards
Aimed at the beginner to Deep Sky astro-photography. Using PhotoShop to process the images, new concepts are explained in plain terms ensuring that the reader develops a comfortable understanding of the software and the procedures required. Advice is based on tried and tested methods aimed at producing stunning results from their hard won data. The logical progression of an image processing session from calibrating and stacking the data through to producing beautiful images full of colour and detail, 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.
ublished in late 2019 and available for sale in May 2020, this book will fill a gap in the list of publications aimed at the beginner to deep sky image processing. Many excellent books on the subject start at just too high a level for those on the first step of this very important aspect of astro-photography. This book seeks to redress this by discussing the use of popular software that numerous other astro-photographers use routinely but in this case, starting at the very beginning. The processes of calibration, alignment, stacking and deconvolution using PixInsight are also discussed in detail.
