TitleHow to photograph the moon and planets with your digital camera
Author(s)Tony Buick;Philip Pugh
Edition2nd.
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2011.
Descriptionxix, 345p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteAlthough our Moon and the planets have not changed much in the five years since the first edition of this book was published, the technology allowing you to photograph them has changed dramatically. And the costs for equipment have come down significantly, opening all kinds of possibilities to the amateur and practical astronomer. With this practical guide to taking quality shots in your own backyard, with all the light pollution found in cities and towns today and using only very basic equipment, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish. Whether you want to dazzle friends or contribute to the scientific understanding of a particular body, whether you are a fan of solar photography or craters on the Moon, the rings of Saturn, or the bands of clouds that color Jupiter, in this book you will find help and support, and clear explanations of how best to proceed. This is a hobby you can stay with for a lifetime and keep on improving. You can get fancier equipment or just learn how to better post process your snaps. Either way, you can benefit from the knowledge and experience the authors of this book share. Don’t waste more time wishing you could capture the beauty found in the heavens! Read how, and get started now!

TitlePractical astrophotography
Author(s)Jeffrey R. Charles
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 2000.
Descriptionxvii, 301p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteAlmost all amateur astronomers want to take photographs of the night sky. For all but the simplest star-trail pictures, this involves machinery - a telescope drive - to track the stars, essential to compensate for the rotation of the earth. The task becomes even more complicated when photographing very small or very faint objects that require high magnification or very long exposure times. Amateurs have many options according to their requirements, technical ability, and budget. Astrophotography for Amateurs looks at all the possibilities, including normal ("wet") photography, CCD imaging, and modern techniques of computer enhancement. There are sections about photographing different classes of astronomical object from the Moon to faint nebulae, as well as a thorough look at the equipment needed.

TitleMake time for the stars: fitting Astronomy into Your Busy Life
Author(s)Antony Cooke
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2009.
Descriptionxii, 259p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteAntony Cooke will give you those answers, and outline a program for star (and Solar System) gazing that you will be able to fit into your busy life. He tells why it is imperative to get yourself the right equipment from the start (without breaking the bank!) and why he thinks it is important to focus on live viewing rather than fancy gadgetry and imaging techniques. Full of sound advice and lots of encouragement, you will come away from this book prepared to take up your old hobby with new vigor and finally get the pleasure you knew was possible from studying our neighbors in space.

TitleMaking beautiful deep-sky images: Astrophotography with Affordable Equipment and Software
Author(s)Greg Parker
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2007.
Descriptionxiii, 117p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteAmateur astronomers, using commercially available equipment, have taken some beautiful and awe-inspiring color photographs of deep-sky objects. But how? Professor Greg Parker's astronomical photographs are widely known for their excellence, and a selection of them has recently been shown as a public exhibition in the UK. In Making Beautiful Deep-Sky Images, he provides a detailed account of how spectacular deep-sky images can be taken by amateur astronomers using CCD cameras, and how they can subsequently be processed and enhanced in the "electronic darkroom" for maximum beauty and impact. You don't even have to own a big telescope. A range of telescopes and equipment is considered in detail, from Greg's 11-inch SCT down to lower-cost instruments.

TitleAmateur telescope making
Author(s)Stephen F. Tonkin (ed.)
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 1999.
Descriptionxii, 259p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteMany amateur astronomers make their own instruments, either because of financial considerations or because they are just interested. Amateur Telescope Making offers a variety of designs for telescopes, mounts and drives which are suitable for the home-constructor. The designs range from simple to advanced, but all are within the range of a moderately well-equipped home workshop. The book not only tells the reader what he can construct, but also what it is sensible to construct given what time is available commercially. Thus each chapter begins with reasons for undertaking the project, then looks at theoretical consideration before finishing with practical instructions and advice. An indication is given as to the skills required for the various projects. Appendices list reputable sources of (mail order) materials and components. The telescopes and mounts range from "shoestring" (very cheap) instruments to specialist devices that are unavailable commercially.
