By Taras R. Hnatyshyn on May 28, 2001
Format: Paperback
This book I feel takes up topics that Michael Covington's "Astrophotography for the Amatuer" and Robert Reeve's "Wide-Field Astrophotography" leave off. The two afore-mentioned texts deal with the techniques, exposure times and equipment for astrophotography more deeply. "Practical Astrophotography" as the title suggests deals better with practical considerations: what to pack on you field trips, what you need for those foreign excursions, etc. This is what sets this book aside from the others. Sure, Jeffery Charles covers the basic techniques very competently, also, but doesn't go as deeply as the other two books. And he concentrates on film photography only.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good book to start with, especially with its tables of exposures and detailed background technical info on optics & photography. Good descriptions of simplified focal length, exposure, magnification and other calculations.
Absolutely no information on CCD photography.
The layout of the book is not very good for applying step-by-step approach for beginners, the process is mixed in with descriptions of technical background.

Contrary to other reviews, this has nothing more than a paragraph here and there for digital SLR cameras.

General astrophotography info. Very general.
