This book is intended to take the novice by the hand and rapidly get him or her taking good astrophotographs right from the beginning. The big difference between this book and all others is that for the first time an exposure system is presented that enables you to move between different lenses/telescopes, films and astronomical subjects and still get good photographs — something that the experts used to advise against. It would have been no trick at all to make this book a truly dazzling visual treat, using professional observatory photographs taken with the worlds greatest telescopes. That temptation has been scrupulously resisted.

In fact, even photographs produced in amateur observatories have been avoided, as have photographs produced using customized equipment fabricated by skilled craftsmen. Instead, what you will find in this book are photographs (many good enough to have been published in leading astronomy magazines) taken by amateur photographers/astronomers using standard, commercially available, portable equipment: in other words, photographs that could be taken by you.
