Creating Stunning Images Is Easier Than You Think!

This instructional guide has one aim: to teach inexperienced astrophotographers how to take high quality images. Often, basic information about astrophotography is lacking, or is dealt with too briefly in books on the subject. This book is a distillation of the author’s own experiences, bringing together everything you will need to make the fastest possible progress in deep-sky imaging.

The book will teach you how to set up and use your astrophotography equipment in a systematic, easy-to-follow manner, helping you get started while avoiding common mistakes. With a step-by-step walk-through course and a unique observational guide to each object, the book contains a plethora of valuable, beginner-friendly information. Particularly useful is the chapter on troubleshooting, which will help newcomers avoid further frustration when things just don’t seem to go right! The book also contains a number of easy to advanced DIY projects for imagers working on a budget.

The author Michael J. O'Brien worked as a Senior Engineer in telecommunications for 20 years before creating his own business repairing and building computers. Following this, he became a partner and designer in a merchandise design company. He currently works as a freelance photographer and amateur astrophotographer of deep-sky objects.
