  1. I just received the german issue from Thierry Legaults "Astrophotography". I will try to give a deeper review in the next weeks. Just a word: I am the author of "Das Blender-Buch" (a book about the free 3D application "Blender") from the same (german) publisher and so maybe a bit biased. The english version is published by Rocky Nook, I review the german translation ("Astrofotografie: Von der richtigen Ausrüstung bis zum perfekten Foto"). First look: It (german version!) comes as hardcover 26x26cm about 240 pages on nice paper. (not sure about the format of the english version, Amazon claims it as pocketbook) the cover is b/w the black is matte and makes a great look and feel, making you want to get your white cotton gloves to maintain the great look. Very nice. only looking at all the quality images will take hours if done in-depth all text and images breathe authenticy, even if we never reach this quality we will learn and enhance It covers all from AP with no telescope to telescopes with guiding. Hardware, software and all types you could imagine to image (ISS, polar lights etc.) I will add bit to this post alon my reading. I think it can not cover all in detail but we are used to learn every day and get informations from errors and other sources. :-) Carsten
  2. Who started out with this book? anyone still got their first kit?
  3. Observing and Measuring Visual Double Stars - Bob Argyle Good to Fair condition. Please note that this is the original (2004) edition of this book) Original CDROM of Double Star catalogues missing. Here is the publisher's blurb on this book. "Double stars are the rule, rather than the exception: our solar system, having a single sun, is in the minority. Orbiting satellites, ground based observatories and interferometers have all helped discover many hundreds of new pairs - but this has left enormous numbers of wide, faint pairs under-observed or not observed at all. This is where amateur astronomers can help. Bob Argyle, a professional astronomer at Cambridge University, shows where enthusiastic amateur observers can best direct their efforts. The book caters for the use of every level of equipment, from simple commercial telescopes to micrometers and CCD cameras. Amateur astronomers who have gone beyond "sight-seeing" and want to make a genuine scientific contribution will find this a fascinating and rewarding field - and this book provides all the background and practical information that's needed." SOLD
  4. I picked up a copy of Philips' "2020 Stargazing month by month guide to the Night Sky" by Couper & Henbest at a discount & remainder store for £3 (reduced from £6.99) It looks like a handy little book, especially for novices, and contains a sky map for each month, monthly objects of interest as well as a listing of the year's special events (conjunctions, etc) and a guide to astrophotography.

  8. I know the gold standard is, "Making Every Photon Count," http://www.firstlightoptics.com/books/making-every-photon-count-steve-richards.html but has anyone given this other starter a try?
