Introduction to Webcam Astrophotography.Introduction to Webcam Astrophotography.

Imaging The Universe With The Amazing,
Affordable Webcam by Robert Reeves.
 

In the last few years webcam astrophotography has exploded onto the astronomy scene. It has rapidly evolved from short exposure six-bit black-and-white imagery into long-exposure full-color 16-bit per channel imagery of such quality that it rivals "conventional" means of astrophotography. Indeed, webcams have become the method of choice for planetary imaging.The message of this book is that you too can participate in this revolution without spending very much money. You do not need to invest £10,000 in a CCD camera, telescope and
software. A basic webcam costs about the same as a "so-so" eyepiece. Software to control the camera and process the images that will get you going is free. If you have the telescope (practically any telescope that will track) and a computer you are ready. Since you see your results instantly the learning curve is much shorter. Regardless of how you apply a webcam to astrophotography, you will derive a number of
benefits. Working with them has been accurately described as interesting, challenging, and
fulfilling. Webcams are capable of producing beautiful astrophotos that create a lasting record of your astronomical experience. The book will guide you into this fascinating topic and allow you to become a participant in this latest wave of astrophotography progress.
 

About the Author:Nearly 50 years ago Robert Reeves began his astrophotography adventure with his parent's Voightlander 120-format camera. His first exposure from his south-Texas garage roof was the brightest object in the sky, which turned out to be Jupiter. Unlike today's readily available books and accessories that make astrophotography more user friendly, back then the budding enthusiast was left to his or her own devices. Robert was not deterred and found a lifelong avocation of imaging the universe with his camera. His images have been published in the leading astronomy magazines and books and in 2000 he wrote the highly acclaimed book Wide-Field Astrophotography followed in 2005 by Introduction to Digital Astrophotography detailing the opportunities presented by consumer digital cameras.
