Can anyone recomend a good book for beginner DSLR?

Hi Guys.

Can someone recomend a good book that teach's astrophotography specifically with a DSLR in mind? I know there are web pages for this sort of thing but I'd prefer a book that I can read anywhere.

Thanks
Sandy

"Digital SLR Astrophotography" Michael A Covington
for a start

And not forgetting, that processing is at least 3X the fun
"Photoshop Astronomy" R Scott Ireland

Hi Sandy,

I highly recommend the e-book A Guide to Astrphotography with a DSLR Camera by Jerry Lodriguss. It has everything you need to know and much much more.

Here's the link. http://www.astropix.com/GADC/INTRO.HTM

If you are interested Bintel sells it.

Hope this helps.

Although all the ones mentioned are good, the book, Introduction to Digital Astrophotography, by Robert Reeves, is an excellent choice, and is also available at Bintell.
