That astro-photography is so involved is something that i did not know, and I realise that it may take me quite some while before I get into it
I like that he gives us lots of resources to explore, and that he keeps the budget aspect in mind
A must read for anyone who wants to delve into this field
If you have a basic understanding of astronomy and want to look into astrophotography, this is a GREAT book to get you started!
