TitleA photographic atlas of selected regions of the Milky Way
Author(s)by Edward Emerson Barnard ; edited by Edwin B. Frost and Mary R. Calvert ; republished under the direction of Gerald Orin Dobek
Description1 online resource (xiv, 358 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteEdward Emerson Barnard's Photographic Atlas of Selected Regions of the Milky Way was originally published in two volumes in 1927. Together, these volumes contained a wealth of information, including photographic plates of the most interesting portions of the Milky Way, descriptive text, charts and data. Only 700 copies were printed, making the original edition a collector's item. Reproduced in print for the first time, this edition combines both volumes of Barnard's Atlas. It directly replicates Barnard's text, and contains high-resolution images of the original photographic plates and charts, reordered so that they can be seen together. It also includes a biography of Barnard and his work, a Foreword and Addendum by Gerald Orin Dobek describing the importance of the Atlas and additions to this volume, and a pull-out section with a mosaic of all 50 plates combined in a single panorama
Contents NoteMachine generated contents note: Foreword by Gerald Orin Dobek; Preface from the original Atlas; Introduction from the original Atlas; Bibliography from the original Atlas; Catalogue of 349 dark objects in the sky; Biography of Edward Emerson Barnard

TitleThe art of astrophotography
Author(s)Ian Morison, Jodrell Bank, University of Manchester
Description1 online resource (xi, 270 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteIn The Art of Astrophotography, astronomer and Astronomy Now columnist Ian Morison provides the essential foundations of how to produce beautiful astronomical images. Every type of astroimaging is covered, from images of the Moon and planets, to the constellations, star clusters and nebulae within our Milky Way Galaxy and the faint light of distant galaxies. He achieves this through a series of worked examples and short project walk-throughs, detailing the equipment needed ??? starting with just a DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera and tripod, and increasing in complexity as the book progresses - followed by the way to best capture the images and then how, step by step, these may be processed and enhanced to provide results that can rival those seen in astronomical magazines and books. Whether you are just getting into astrophotography or are already deeply involved, Morison's advice will help you capture and create enticing astronomical images

TitleAn amateur's guide to observing and imaging the heavens
Author(s)Ian Morison, University of Manchester and Gresham College
Description1 online resource (xiv, 321 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteAn Amateur's Guide to Observing and Imaging the Heavens is a highly comprehensive guidebook that bridges the gap between the beginners' and hobbyists' books and the many specialised and subject-specific texts for more advanced amateur astronomers. Written by an experienced astronomer and educator, the book is a one-stop reference providing extensive information and advice about observing and imaging equipment, with detailed examples showing how best to use them. In addition to providing in-depth knowledge about every type of astronomical telescope and highlighting their strengths and weaknesses, two chapters offer advice on making visual observations of the Sun, Moon, planets, stars and galaxies. All types of modern astronomical imaging are covered, with step-by-step details given on the use of DSLRs and web-cams for solar, lunar and planetary imaging and the use of DSLRs and cooled CCD cameras for deep sky imaging

TitleLessons from the masters : current concepts in astronomical image processing
Author(s)Robert Gendler (ed.)
Description1 online resource : illustrations
Abstract NoteThere are currently thousands of amateur astronomers around the world engaged in astrophotography at increasingly sophisticated levels. Their ranks far outnumber professional astronomers doing the same and their contributions both technically and artistically are the dominant drivers of progress in the field today. This book is a unique collaboration of individuals, all world-renowned in their particular area, and covers in detail each of the major sub-disciplines of astrophotography. This approach offers the reader the greatest opportunity to learn the most current information and the latest techniques directly from the foremost innovators in the field today. The book as a whole covers all types of astronomical image processing, including processing of eclipses and solar phenomena, extracting detail from deep-sky, planetary, and widefield images, and offers solutions to some of the most challenging and vexing problems in astronomical image processing. Recognized chapter authors include deep sky experts such asJAY GABANY,TONY HALLAS,ROBERT GENDLER,KEN CRAWFORD, high-resolution planetary expertDAMIAN PEACH, and the founder of The World at NightBABAK A. TAFRESHI, among other luminaries in the field of astronomical image processing. A large number of quality illustrations help explain the critical concepts and complex techniques the modern astrophotographer will need to achieve the highest level of quality in their astronomical images

TitleScientific astrophotography : how amateurs can generate and use professional imaging data
Author(s)Gerald R. Hubbell
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource : ill
Abstract NoteScientific Astrophotography is a work for those amateur astronomers looking for new challenges, once they have mastered visual observing and the basic imaging of various astronomical objects. It is a wonderful reference for scientifically-inclined observers who want to learn the fundamentals of astrophotography with a firm emphasis on the discipline of scientific imaging.This book is a wealth of information and a distillation of ideas presented by a diverse set of sources and based on the most recent techniques, equipment, and data available. It also includes numerous exercises for the reader, to maximize the success and minimize the frustration inherent in the pursuit of this specific craft. Scientific Astrophotography is perfect for any amateur astronomer who wants to go beyond just the process of making beautiful images and actually contribute to the science of astronomy!"...Gerald Hubbell's new book, Scientific Astrophotography, is the perfect companion for anyone dipping their toe into the digital imaging realm for the first time. The author answers all the questions people have when starting out, such as how do I get the most bang for my buck, and how do I select the right CCD for my telescope?"- Mike Simonsen, American Association of Variable Star Observers

TitleHow to photograph the moon and planets with your digital camera
Author(s)Tony Buick;Philip Pugh
Edition2nd ed
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xix, 345 p.) : col. ill
Abstract NoteAlthough astronomical CCD cameras can be very costly, digital cameras -- the kind you use on holiday -- on the other hand, are relatively inexpensive. Moreover, their technology -- especially thermal noise, sensitivity (ISO number) and resolution -- has progressed to a point where such cameras are more than capable of photographing the brighter astronomical objects. Now Tony Buick has teamed up with fellow author and astro imager Phil Pugh, to produce a completely revised, updated, and extended second edition to How to Photograph the Moon and Planets with your Digital Camera, first published i
