I strongly recommend this book if you'd like to explore the heavens with your camera. So head outdoors and record the wonder of our planet, solar system, and galaxies. The film's cheap, and there's no reason to ever sleep again! (National Parks Traveler)
The techniques are well explained and lead readers through the process ... Photo tips the authors impart include photographing star trails, moon phases and twilight; capturing phenomena such as auroras, noctilucent clouds and those mercurial meteors. (Oregonlive.com)

It is focused on night photography with a camera, wide angle lens, and tripod. It omits any information on the use of a tracker to enable much longer exposures and longer focal length lenses. With excellent sky trackers selling for as little as $300 this subject should have been addressed at least in part.
This is really for a serious photographer. Someone with a sturdy tripod, an SLR (preferably full frame) with high ISO, and a good wide angle lens or lenses.
I have done night photography with my Canon 5D Mark III for a couple of years and I got some great ideas and suggestions after having read this book.
