The Art and Science of CCD Astronomy (Practical Astronomy)Code: INS0315
Auteurs: David Ratledge
The book is welcome, as the number of practical guides to the use of a CCD camera is still strictly limited and mostly based on American products.... A well produced and error-free book."
Charge-coupled Devices (CCDs) have revolutionised astronomy. Even affordable CCD cameras can be ten times a sensitive as photographic film, and they deliver a digitised image that is easy to enhance using a personal computer. David Ratledge has brought together contributions from twelve leading amateurs from around the world, people who are routinely producing astronomical images of a quality that rivals those of professional observatories only of 10 years ago. These experts describe their techniques and solutions, and offer essential tips and advice for anyone who is choosing or using a CCD camera. Now glance through the Colour Gallery at the back of this book to see just what they have done!
