SPLENDORS OF THE UNIVERSE:A Practical Guide to Photographing the Night Sky
By: Terence Dickinson and Jack Newton
Majestic clouds of cosmic gas against a backdrop of a million stars... the elegant swirl of a remote spiral galaxy... the ethereal glow of the Milky Way on a cool summer night.
Not long ago, capturing such celestial sights on film was a task limited to major research-observatory telescopes. In the past decade, however, all that has changed. Today, equipped with moder n photographic films or electronic imaging techniques, the dedicated backyard astronomer can surpass all but the very best color pictures obtained at the world's largest observatories.
This book displays more than 200 portraits, ranging from lunar landscapes to remote galaxy clusters billions of light-years away - all taken by amateur astronomers. More than a picture gallery, Splendors of the Universe provides information on the objects displayed as well as details of how each pictures wa s taken. Astro photography experts Terence Dickinson and Jack Newton offer a wealth of practical information and tips about techniques and equipment for both novice and experienced sky photographers.
