Reviews - What do customers think about Video Astronomy (Sky & Telescope Observer's Guides), Revised Edition?

Video Astronomy book  Sep 7, 2008
The title to this edition and the first edition published in 2000 offer a book that has relatively little to do with video. Both editions are astrophotography books, and only use the video camera to capture multiple images to stack and make better astrophotos. If your looking for premier advanced video techniques, leads to low cost top end video cameras, methods, techniques and software, then seek out the leader in video astronomy - the International Occultation Timing Association and its related websites. IOTA's free book on occultations and video techniques is here:
A classic book  Jul 11, 2006
I bought both versions of this book by Sky Publishing. The revised / second edition is still limited by small illustrations but does a wonderful job of illustrating and describing the newer video technologies that now allow us to photograph faint objects like galaxies ,nebulae, supernova and comets. It still remains a very good reference to video imaging as an alternative and simple to apply medium although it would have been nice to see some more detail on the image processing techniques used by the authors and the many users of video in astronmy.
Good practical book for amateurs  Feb 27, 2005
This is a very useful book for those wanting to learn how to take pictures of the planets, the moon, the sun and even nebula and galaxies now with low-cost equipment. The revised edition better illustrates the current technolgy of webcams and video cameras used by amateurs today. There appear to be several new and replaced illustrations over the first edition with more up-to-date information etc. Unfortunately the book still presents many of the pictures in a smaller format like the original. Even so it still remains a great reference guide and better explores the use of video as a tool for imaging DSO's.
A Great Guide to Simple Imaging  Aug 14, 2002
We have had a telescope left unused in our back shed for many years because we had simply lost interest and time. A friend told us about the book Video Astronomy so we decided to buy it and try out the techniques. Both my husband and I were amazed that we could record the moon and some of the planets so effortlessly using low cost video cameras used for security. The book has a nice simple guide to building your own camera with parts you can find at a local electronics parts dealer. We did this and were delighted at how simple it was to use. Our interest in at least using our telescope has been renewed since reading this informative little book. We highly recommend it to anyone wanting to take pictures of the planets and the moon.
Handy Book  Aug 6, 2001
Since starting with video cameras a couple of years ago now using a 4-inch refractor I found this book very handy. It offers a lot of good tips and ideas. Some of the pictures could have been larger but the subject is well covered and easy to understand. A good all around book and addition to the library if you want to record the moon and planets with video gear you might already own.
