Editorial Reviews

Review

Endorsements ..".Overall, Scientific Astrophotography is a compelling work in the history of technical photographic publications, and it is noteworthy that this is Hubbell's first book on the subject, culminating his own learning experience in making astrophotographs, which began only a few years ago. Even though Hubbell is a relative newcomer, he delivers with the expertise of someone who has practiced for decades. The book is written as though Hubbell were with you, giving you encouragement, inspiration, and all the technical advice you could hope for..." - Scott Roberts, Founder and President, Explore Scientific LLC "Astronomical imaging has come a long way in a short period of time. The era of cold cameras and hypersensitization of photographic emulsions has been replaced with Charge-Coupled Devices, software image enhancements, and precise tracking and go-to mounts we only dreamed of a short quarter of a century ago. Hubbell's Scientific Astrophotography is truly a masterpiece for those who not only want to select the right gear for doing high-quality astronomical imaging, yet understand why the various hardware, components, and especially high-quality optics and options are needed. This work will become the standard for those who are hard-core astronomical imagers as well as those who simply would like to explore and understand today's imaging techniques." - Dr. Mike Reynolds, Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Astronomer, Florida State College "Gerald Hubbell's new book, Scientific Astrophotography, is the perfect companion for anyone dipping their toe into the digital imaging realm for the first time. The author answers all the questions people have when starting out, such as how do I get the most bang for my buck, and how do I select the right CCD for my telescope? The first part of the book guides the reader through the entire imaging system, component by component. The second part instructs the reader on how to acquire and calibrate the images. Once you h

The author answers all the questions people have when starting out, such as how do I get the most bang for my buck, and how do I select the right CCD for my telescope?
The first part of the book guides the reader through the entire imaging system, component by component. The second part instructs the reader on how to acquire and calibrate the images. Once you have mastered the basics, the third part of the book introduces you to all the ways today's amateur astronomers can obtain scientifically useful data, and who to share this data with.
This guide is exceptionally well organized and provides useful field exercises all along the way, making the climb up the learning curve just a little bit easier for all of us." (Mike Simonsen, American Association of Variable Star Observers)

"Jerry Hubbell has been using SSON since April 2009 for various remote astronomy projects. His new book Scientific Astrophotography is a well written comprehensive description and guide for doing meaningful scientific imaging work in astronomy. Whether you are just starting out or are experience doing scientific astronomy projects, you will find the book to be an excellent reference for improving your skills." (Rich Williams, Found of the Sierra Stars Observatory Network (SSON))

"Scientific Astrophotography is a major contribution to the literature in the field of astronomical photography. Hubbell, a well-respected astro-photographer himself, has written a book that will be of value to both the newcomer and the seasoned imager. In his well-written book, he methodically covers the field, giving helpful practical information as well as the theoretical background so the reader understands both the hows and the whys. This book stands out for its thoroughness and breadth; as well as Hubbell's clear thinking and articulate writing. Scientific Astrophotography upholds the high standards of the Patrick Moore series." (Tom Field, Founder of Field Tested Software, and RSpec Developer)
