Karl W. LewisFormat: PaperbackVerified PurchaseI used this book to go from ZERO to Astrophotographer. I have purchased some other books on the subject, as well, but this remains my favorite go-to problem solver. I guess one of my favorite things about the book, (and it is a theme that runs through several of Mr. Hall’s other books, (I think I now own everything he’s published on the subject of astronomy)), is that he solves problems with techniques that do not all involve spending large sums of money… he can lead the aspiring astrophotographer into the hobby without putting them into the poor house. (Mind you, there’s no way to do any of this stuff for free, however.) He helps one spend their money where it does the most good.
NooneFormat: PaperbackVerified Purchase1st of All: I am an amateur with about 6 months experience. I have an Equatorial with an 8” Newtonian and been dabbling in Astrophotography with my DSLR.
I love this book (first bought kindle… love it so much, that I also bought the hardcopy, because it does take baby steps… The author will not start with unfamiliar terms, without first introducing them.
The build-up is tremendous… it certainly starts with the basics giving you a very thorough background… even when I “thought” I had surmounted some of those fledgling challenges… I now know not only what I did wrong, but why it was wrong and how to fix it.
Look, I’m pretty picky, and yes very resourceful, so I have been hitting the internet but still, have not found all the information.. and certainly not as well organized as the author presents it.
What are you waiting for?!
Not the book for you? That’s OK, I have more astronomy/astrophotography books for you to look at!
