This book is based around the author's beautiful and sometimes awe-inspiring color images and mosaics of deep-sky objects. The images were used as the basis of a public exhibition held at the University of Southampton (Summer 2006), attended by the press, local radio and TV interviewers as well as the public. The book describes how similar images can be created by amateur astronomers, using commercially available telescopes and CCD cameras. Subsequent processing and image enhancement in the "electronic darkroom" is covered in detail as well. Not everybody can afford the biggest and best…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
This book is based around the author's beautiful and sometimes awe-inspiring color images and mosaics of deep-sky objects. The images were used as the basis of a public exhibition held at the University of Southampton (Summer 2006), attended by the press, local radio and TV interviewers as well as the public. The book describes how similar images can be created by amateur astronomers, using commercially available telescopes and CCD cameras. Subsequent processing and image enhancement in the "electronic darkroom" is covered in detail as well. Not everybody can afford the biggest and best telescopes and CCD cameras, so a range of telescopes and equipment is considered, from the author's 11-inch with Hyperstar camera, down to more affordable instruments. Appendices provide links to free software - not available from a single source - and are themselves an invaluable resource. TOC:Telescopes and Charge-Coupled Devices (CCDs).- Collimation and Polar Alignment of Your System.- Preparing to Take Your First Deep-Sky Image.- First Light!.- Simple Processing Techniques.- More Advanced Processing Techniques.- Creating A Large Image Mosaic.-Further Imaging Projects.- Appendixes.

Rezensionen
"Parker provides a detailed guide to setting up one's telescope and making sophisticated images using the currently available software. ... The extensive bibliography provides the novice with a wealth of print and web resources for further study. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and general readers." (D. E. Hogg, Choice, Vol. 55 (10), June, 2018)

"The writing is very clear, offering many tips and techniques. ... This book will be a valuable reference to anyone wishing to get started in this fascinating hobby." (Computing Reviews, November, 2017)

"This book doubles as a technical guide to deep sky astrophotography for intermediate or advanced astrophotography enthusiasts but also as an inspirational guide to show what can be achieved with enough time and effort. ... And 'Making Beautiful Deep-Sky Images' might just provide you with the inspiration to do so together with the skills you'd need to start taking amazing photos of some of the most beautiful astronomical objects."
