Abstract

The aim of this section of the book is to provide an overview that the novice-to-intermediate astro-imager will find useful in getting started and making progress in taking pictures of deep sky objects.

Deep sky astro-imaging is a fascinating and hugely rewarding hobby. From your own back garden, you can quickly produce detailed images of those faint and fuzzy objects one peers at through the telescope eyepiece. In almost no time at all you can get results that will have you grinning from ear to ear! Mind you, frustration can come in equal measure, and we cannot casually gloss over the difficulties faced in trying to produce an image we are proud of.
