Making Beautiful Deep-Sky Images Description

Author: Greg Parker

Softcover: 177 pages

Featuring images taken with Starizona's HyperStar system

  • Describes how people can take "Hubble class" deep-sky images from the back garden
  • Explains how to process digital astronomical images
  • Shows how to put together an astronomical imaging system using commercial equipment for deep-sky photography

Amateur astronomers, using commercially available equipment, have taken some beautiful and awe-inspiring color photographs of deep-sky objects. But how?

Professor Greg Parker's astronomical photographs are widely known for their excellence, and a selection of them has recently been shown as a public exhibition in the UK. In Making Beautiful Deep-Sky Images, he provides a detailed account of how spectacular deep-sky images can be taken by amateur astronomers using CCD cameras, and how they can subsequently be processed and enhanced in the "electronic darkroom" for maximum beauty and impact.

You don't even have to own a big telescope. A range of telescopes and equipment is considered in detail, from Greg's 11-inch SCT down to lower-cost instruments.

Quite simply, this is a "how to do it" book for people who want to make stunning astronomical pictures.
