Book Description
The new improvements in telescopic equipment make it possible for amateur telescopes to equal the photographic performance of many professional telescopes. A Manual of Advanced Celestial Photography forms a unique technical handbook for amateur astrophotographers. It includes detailed discussion of topics never before included in a general survey, such as photographic optics, instrument design, techniques at the telescope, films and developers, advanced darkroom methods, sensitometry and film hypersensitization. Throughout the book emphasis is placed on professional laboratory methods to encourage readers to conduct their own experiments and to make contributions to the science of photography. The authors have considerable experience in both the practice and theory of astronomical photography. In addition, special techniques are discussed by experts in the relevant fields, making this a very comprehensive and up-to-date manual which should be the basic reference work for all amateur astrophotographers.
