Making Beautiful Deep-Sky Images : Astrophotography with Affordable Equipment and Software Paperback
by Greg Parker
Part of the The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series series
This book is based around the author's beautiful and sometimes awe-inspiring color images and mosaics of deep-sky objects.
The book describes how similar "Hubble class" images can be created by amateur astronomers in their back garden using commercially available telescopes and CCD cameras.
Subsequent processing and image enhancement in the "electronic darkroom" is covered in detail as well.
A range of telescopes and equipment is considered, from the author's 11-inch with Hyperstar camera, down to more affordable instruments.
Appendices provide links to free software - not available from a single source - and are themselves an invaluable resource.
