Astrophotography for the Amateur by Michael Covington, Cambridge University Press, 1985 Hardbound Edition, 168 pp.
Original, out of print hardcover edition of Michael Covington's complete guide to astronomical photography. In addition to providing detailed sections on basic photographic principles and instrumentation (telescopes and cameras), Covington also provides an extensive list of exposure tables for imaging the moon and planets.
Not since Dr. Henry Paul's classic Outer Space Photography for the Amateur was first published in 1960, has anyone provided such a wealth of useful, easy to understand information in one volume. [The newer edition of Covington's book does have more information on digital imaging, but lists for nearly $40.00. With the exception of the information of digital cameras, the first edition remains the standard reference on this topic.]
The book is in excellent, like new condition, with a small tear in the back of the dust jacket. Asking $12.00, plus postage for this book by itself, or together with Kodak Filters for Scientific and Technical Use [Ad # 232917] for $17.00, including postage.
