This is my personal photograph. Not bad but with this book I know it would be perfect. Who doesn’t want to see amazing, detailed craters in their Moon shots??
Many of these tips and tricks I’ve done, and it’s a lot of fun to experiment.
You learn to:
- Select the most useful equipment: cameras, adapters, filters, focal reducers/extenders, field correctors, and guide telescopes
- Set up your camera (digital, video, or CCD) and your lens or telescope for optimal results
- Plan your observing sessions
- Mount the camera on your telescope and focus it for razor-sharp images
- Polar-align your equatorial mount and improve tracking for pin-point star images
- Make celestial time-lapse videos
- Calculate the shooting parameters: focal length and ratio, field of view, exposure time, etc.
- Combine multiples exposures to reveal faint galaxies, nebulae details, elusive planetary structures, and tiny lunar craters
I’ve had to struggle with getting the perfect Moon shot and this book well-learned can solve any problem you may have with this. It’s not just the gear, it’s the knowledge.
