Product Description

Review

"...a great "how-to" manual as well as an excellent reference text. If you are serious about astrophotography and are looking for something which will give you a stronger theoretical background on many of the related topics (optics, scope construction, digital signal processing), then you need to make sure you have a copy of Covington's book within easy reach."
Wan Chi Lau

'... Covington has put a lot of effort into this work and it is very comprehensive and well written.' Astronomy Now

'It is a book that could get an amateur from being a complete astrophotography novice to an advanced DSLR imager ... For someone starting out on the road to DSLR astro-imaging it is well worth having.' Astronomy Now

'... so ideal for astrophotographers ...' Spaceflight

'Having used Michael Covington's earlier book, Astrophotography for the Amateur, I was interested to find out whether digital SLR was up to the same standard. I am pleased to report that it is ... Whilst I have been using a Canon 300D for some time, I found this book to be very useful [to] solve some of the difficulties I was having, and can thoroughly recommend this book. it is a valuable addition to the astro-imagers bookshelf.' F.A.S. Newsletter

'You never stop learning about this vast topic, so it's great when a book comes along that's loaded with tips to take your imaging further. ... Covington conveys the information in such a relaxed style that even the techie stuff is pleasant to read. Everything about DSLRs you can think of is covered here and the text is complemented by clear and informative line drawings and black and white photos. Illustrations showing you how to couple a camera and a telescope are particularly good and very helpful for beginners. The text is littered with commonsense practical advice and useful tips ... every DLSR astrophotographer should have a copy of this great book.' BBC Sky at Night

"...an excellent overview of what every digital photographer needs to know before heading into the field to shoot the starry sky. By carefully avoiding camera-specific details, the text will long remain relevant." --Sky & Telescope
