From the PublisherOn the first edition (2006):
Buick, an experienced amateur astronomer, uses his own images... to illustrate a variety of equipment... [N]ovice imagers can rest assured that the images here are what the beginner can realistically expect to achieve... I enjoyed this book, and learned from it too.
—Peter Grego, in Popular Astronomy, July-September 2006
The color images he has produced – there are over 300 of them in the book – are of breathtaking quality. His book is more than a manual of techniques (including details of how to make a low-cost DIY camera mount) and examples; it also provides a concise photographic atlas of the whole of the nearside of the Moon – with every image made using a standard digital camera – and describes the various lunar features, including the sites of manned and robotic landings.
