How to photograph the Moon and planets with your digital camera

How to Photograph the Moon and Planets with your digital camera is the 2nd edition of the original written by Tony Buick. It retains the original aim of taking good photographs on a limited budget but extends the technique to cover constellation shots, brighter deep sky objects and the Sun using entry-level narrowband telescopes. It is essential reading for the enthusiastic but budget-limited amateur astrophotographer but also good background for those who intend to move on to other techniques, such as webcamming and long-exposure CCD imaging at a later date. It also gives information about how to process these photographs, giving different examples for different camera types. Both Tony and Phil are prolific photographers of the Moon and Sun and are actively engaging in the discovery of new tools and techniques that are affordable to most people. Some of the example shots did not use a telescope at all and there are also examples of photographs taken though binoculars.
