It's an awesome book, in all respects.
This is my go-to book, for both observing and as a reference.
Cheers Phil

PS. The Solar Astronomy book is equally as good.

This is the "bible" if you want to learn how to image the planets.

Thanks for the heads up of the book, looks like it may be worth investing in, to replace the older and outdated The Planet Observers Handbook that I've been using for a "few" years .

If all you are interested in a short "how-to", then the FAQ in the Planetary Imaging forum on Cloudy Nights might be worth a look.

Note that it also provides a link to Christophe's excellent book in the "Further Reading" section.
