Making Every Photon Count
A Beginner's Guide to Deep Sky Astro-photography
Quotes from Sir Patrick Moore's foreword to the book:-
"There are many books about astronomical photography, but none quite like this one at least as far as I know. What Steve Richards has done is to begin at the very beginning. He assumes that his reader has absolutely no prior knowledge, and guides him (or her!) gently through to the stage of being able to take really good photographs."
"Steve Richards has therefore plugged a notable hole in the literature, and I can appreciate this particularly because I have always been a visual observer rather than a photographer."
