Making Every Photon Count Book - An absolute MUST for newbies into Imaging

Recommended Posts

Hello all...I just wanted to say that I bought this book on the advice of people on here. It is an absolute must have for anyone. Steve - you really do have a gem here.

I've read through about 40 pages word for word so far and flicked through the rest as I am reading and my only advice as a newbie to this amazing world is this book really WILL help you decide what to buy and how much to spend...I've completely gone back on my original impulse desire to buy a huge telescope because it isn't suitable for what I want to do without spending even more money.

The money is so well worth it and it will save you hundreds of pounds if not thousands in the long run! :)

Always recommend it to anyone interested in the "dark side". Its so important to get an overview of the whole subject before you start spending any money. Looking at some of the great work that regularly appears on here makes it all look so easy but there is a steep learning curve to get over both with collecting the data and later processing it. A very good book, well written and comprehensive - can't ask for more!

I totally agree - it's also prevented me from going down the 'wrong route' and spending a fortune :)

Hmm... strange... I also read it, and still managed to near-bankrupt myself. :) ...but then, I've never been great at taking financial advice, especially where techno-toys are concerned. :headbang:

But at least you bankrupted yourself with useful kit
