From the author of Getting Started: Long Exposure Astrophotography and Getting Started: Budget Astrophotography comes a book specifically aimed at helping beginning astrophotographers in North America capture some, or all of the Messier objects. Finally, here is one resource you can use on your desk or take into the field providing information on each Messier object, the best time of year to shoot it, approximation of size of the object in your final photo, shoot tes, star charts and more. To help you identify your targets and process your images each object is accompanied by a photo of what you can realistically expect to accomplish at the beginner to intermediate level. Originally written to be used with the author's book Getting Started: Long Exposure Astrophotography, this book concentrates on the objects themselves with some specific tips to image them, particularly with a DSLR. Shooting the Messier objects is a fantastic way to start or continue your astrophotography pursuits, and this book can help make that experience easier and more enjoyable.
