The Handbook of Astronomical Image Processing describes both practical and theoretical aspects of astronomical imaging and image manipulation. In 18 chapters, you will learn the basic principles behind making good images, extracting data, and enhancing what can be seen. The authors not only present the mathematical theory, but also direct your attention to essential points in clear and understandable English. For computer programmers, important processes are illustrated with examples in pseudocode. Nowhere else can you find so much information concentrated into a single reference than in the Handbook of Astronomical Image Processing.

AIP for Windows is the full-featured image-processing software included on the CDROM in the back of this book. The authors analyzed the way they worked with images and created a software package that facilitates workflow. Realizing that not everyone has the same work style, the authors recruited serious CCD observers, each working on different imaging projects, to serve as beta testers and give each software "tool" a thorough workout. The beta testers tested and re-tested each and every feature, and re-tested each update as the authors fixed the inevitable bugs and added new functionality to the software. The result is a powerful software program that is both intuitive and easy to use. AIP for Windows provides a complete solution to just about any astronomical project.
