Have you ever looked at the night time sky and wanted to take a picture of the moon the planets and the stars? Then this book is for you. It is not a simple subject and the book tires valiantly to explain the hows and the whys of this process. In my case the level of understanding of photography I brought to the book only allowed me to benefit from the 1st 3 chapters of this book. The book is requires more than a basic understanding of photography. While it has a more than adequate table of contents which I found very helpful and is chock full of color pictures and detailed instructions on how to take pictures of a variety of celestial objects its indexing was subpar. This is why I gave it a reduced rating. Its like getting an expensive car only to discover the company gave you cheap tires. If you have a good knowledge of photography, a good DSLR camera and a decent telescope then you will benefit from this book. If you don't then I advise you to get the basic knowledge first and then try this book. For the rest of us with cellphone cameras then I suggest you go this website (from Wired.com) and learn how to photograph the moon. http://www.wired.com/2014/08/wtf-just-happened-shoot-the-moon/ ( )
