Astrophotography - Which Book?

I'm looking for a good book on astrophotography. I've narrowed it down to two. Would appreciate your thoughts on these please:
1. The Astrophotography Manual, A Practical and Scientific Approach to Deep Space Imaging, by Chris Woodhouse.
2. Getting Started, Long Exposure Astrophotography by Allan Hall.

I have #1 and it is quite good but I think it is probably most appropriate for an advanced beginner to intermediate imager. #2 looks like a better place to start if you're new to astrophotography.

Cheers,
Rick.

#1 is excellent, but it's a substantial investment. The first edition is around $60, but he's just published a second expanded edition which is over $80! #2 is quite good, but I'd also throw "The Deep-sky Imaging Primer" by Charles Bracken into the mix. Well worth a look.

Thanks for your input guys.
I am not new to astrophotography, but certainly not an expert. I use a GStarEX2 ( a high sensitivity but unfortunately low res. camera) and my Nikon D90 DSLR. I do want to advance though and am looking at getting a ZWO ASI1600MM sometime soon. I'm particularly interested in narrow-band imaging. So, all that being said, I'm going for my 1st choice - The Astrophotography Manual, A Practical and Scientific Approach to Deep Space Imaging, by Chris Woodhouse. Thanks again for your replies and advice.
Robert
