This book provides a thorough introduction to and exploration of deep sky astrophotography for the digital photographer.

With over 280 images, graphs, and tables, this introductory book uses a progressive and practical style to teach readers how to image the night sky using existing, affordable equipment. The book opens with a brief astronomy primer, followed by chapters that build progressively to explain the challenges, offer solutions, and provide invaluable information on equipment choice through image capture, calibration, and processing in affordable software. The book's focus ranges from how to image sweeping vistas and star trails using only a camera body, lens and tripod, to more advanced methods suitable for imaging galaxies, clusters, nebulae, and stars.

Other features of the book include:

Real-world assignments showing how and when to use certain tools and how to overcome challenges and setbacks

Practical construction projects

Evaluations of the most recent developments in affordable hardware and software

Exploration on how sensor performance and light pollution relate to image quality and exposure planning

Ground-breaking practical chapters on lucky imaging and choosing and using the latest CMOS cameras

Written in an accessible, easy to follow format, this comprehensive guide equips readers with all the necessary skills to progress from photographer to astrophotographer.
