Using just a regular digital camera along with an amateur astronomical telescope, anyone can produce spectacular photographs of the Moon, as well as surprisingly good images of major planets.
Purpose-made astronomical CCD cameras are still very expensive, but technology has now progressed so that digital cameras – the kind you use for everyday photos – are more than capable of being used for astronomy. Tony Buick has written this illustrated step-by-step manual for anyone who has a telescope (of any size) and a digital camera. Look inside at the beautiful color images he has produced – you could do the same.

Much more than a manual of techniques and examples, this book also provides a concise photographic atlas of the whole of the nearside of the Moon – with every image made using a standard digital camera – describing important lunar features, including the sites of manned and robotic landings.
