Packed with over 220 images, illustrations, charts and graphs as well as over 61,000 words. This is the astrophotography book you want to start out capturing those beautiful, faint, deep space objects. I will take you on a journey exploring all aspects of astrophotography including in-depth details of field rotation, focusing methods, as well as explaining not just the what and how, but the ever important why. Actually see why you stack multiple images and what effect it has. Don’t just read about how the atmosphere affects imaging, see it through experimentation that you can do at home on your own!

My desire in creating this astrophotography book was to take the novice from selecting their telescope and mount all the way through processing those final astrophotography pictures. If you are looking for a single complete source for all the information you need to get going, this is the astrophotography book for you.

Look for Getting Started: Long Exposure Astrophotography on Amazon.com in both Kindle edition and in print, and at other fine retailers.
