Making Every Photon Count
A Beginner's Guide to Deep Sky Astro-photography
By Steve Richards - now in its second edition
First published in 2009, revised and updated in 2011, this book will fill a gap in the list of publications aimed at the astro-photographer. Many excellent books on the subject of astro-photography are essentially showcases for the authors work using the latest state of the art equipment acquired over many years using methods honed through long experience of imaging. Although without doubt these books give the reader something to aspire to and the images are, of course, a very important and worthwhile part of any book, the 'high end' nature of the equipment in use is often far removed from the realistic purchases of the beginner.
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.
