The Moon - A Beginner’s Guide to Lunar Features and Photography
Publisher: White Owl
“A must-have for anybody interested in lunar photography. If you are a beginner, this is the only lunar observing book you will ever need.” —BBC Sky at Night Magazine
This is a practical guide aimed at beginners interested in learning about the Moon and how to image our closest satellite neighbor. The book contains the complete photographic process including equipment, settings, capture techniques, stacking and image processing, each of which is vitally important to producing a good image. The information is laid out in a visual and easy-to-understand format so that even the dark art of image processing will not seem quite so daunting. There are many high-quality color photos of the Moon to help you learn about different lunar features and a list of 100 lunar targets identified as a challenge for you to find. All the targets have been captured by the author who provides a brief description of each feature and where it is located on the lunar surface. You will be surprised to discover the fine level of lunar detail which you can see from your back garden and once you start imaging, you will realize there is more to the Moon than meets the eye.
“Although this book uses the Moon as a starting point, the wisdom it imparts can be applied to many different areas of astrophotography, including how to use planetary imaging preprocessing for crystal-clear images. Whether you’ve never picked up a camera before or you’re looking to get a few tips and tricks, this book is a great addition to your photography library.” —How it Works
