Description

High-performance CCD cameras have opened up an exciting new window on the Universe for amateur astronomers.

This book provides a complete, self-contained guide to choosing and using CCD cameras.

We start with a no-nonsense introduction to how a CCD camera works and just what determines its performance.

We are then shown how to use a CCD camera and calibrate accurately the images we obtain.

A clear review is then provided of the software available for visualising, analysing and processing digital images.

Finally, we are guided through a series of key areas in astronomy where we can make the best use of our CCD cameras.

This handy volume is packed with practical tips. It provides a clear introduction to CCD astronomy for novices and an indispensable reference for more experienced amateur astronomers.
