Review:

"...highly recommend[ed]... to novice astrophotographers, but it is also an excellent reference for more advanced individuals....This work would also serve well in the field, as a quick reference to many of the formulas and techniques contained within." Sky & Telescope

"I enjoyed this book the first time I picked it up...I still find it a prime source for everything having to do with photographing the heavens." Paul R. Castle, Reflector

"After reading this book, many will find it hard to resist the fascinating pursuit of astrophotography, which sometimes yields results that are of interest to professional photographers. This is the finest treatment of the subject at this level available in book form and is perfect for its intended audience." Science Books and Films
