Astrofotografie Referenzliste

Die Quellen, aus denen ich am meisten gelernt habe

Dies ist meine voreingenommene, aber kategorisierte, aber nicht “priorisierte” Liste von interessanten Informationsquellen über Astrofotografie. Nun, der einzige Teil, der “vorrangig” ist, sind die Bücher im ersten Abschnitt.

Bücher

I learned for myself that astrophotography is one of those domains where it is far better to buy and read a book at the beginning instead of digging through Internet. And I learned this in a hard way. I actually started with the book which is first on the list below and then spent a lot of time, actually too much, in Internet. Information about astrophotography on Internet is very scattered, too specialized, and sometime strongly opinionated. I ended up buying the most of the books on the list below. If I did this earlier, I’m sure, it saved a lot of time.

  • “Astrofotografie: Spektakuläre Bilder ohne Spezialausrüstung” by Katja Seidel, in German (on Amazon, or better, if you are in Germany, on GeniaLokal). This is the best book for all photographers getting into astrophotography. It is mostly focused on nightscapes and Milky Way photography
  • “Photography: Night Sky: A Field Guide for Shooting after Dark” by Jennifer Wu and James Martin (on Amazon, or better, if you are in Germany, on GeniaLokal). I do not own this book, but it looks like it is a similar book in its scope and quality as the above one, but in English.
  • “Digital SLR Astrophotography” by Michael A. Covington (on Amazon, or better, if you are in Germany, on GeniaLokal). This is another must-have and must-read if you are interested in astrophotography and have a good background in regular photography. It touches many topics which are not addressed in the previous ones.
  • “The Astrophotography Manual” by Chris Woodhouse(on Amazon, if you are in Germany, on GeniaLokal). This book has more topics classical astrophotography and touching more deepter “astro” details than the previous one, especially regrading the the telecope gear
  • “The Deep-sky Imaging Primer” by Charles Bracken (on Amazon, or better, if you are in Germany, on GeniaLokal). This one is a big help at a time when you processed your first pictures and now want do it better ;-). As the title says, it is focused on imaging and processing. It covers both PixInsight and PhotoShop.
  • “Mastering PixInsight and the art of Astroimage Processing” by by Rogelio Bernal Andreo (available through his website only). A highly recommended book for all those who already did the first steps in PixInsight and want to advance.

Wenn ich wieder bei Null anfangen würde, würde ich in dieser Reihenfolge kaufen und lesen:

  • first, about nightscapes, e.g. the “Astrofotografie: Spektakuläre Bilder ohne Spezialausrüstung” by Katja Seidel, or in English “Photography: Night Sky: A Field Guide for Shooting after Dark” by Jennifer Wu and James Martin
  • then about going deeper in into the deep space: “Digital SLR Astrophotography” by Michael A. Covington
  • and after you complete basic tutorial from Internet a book or a guide about your favorite processing tools. I use PixInsight and mostly use either the “The Deep-sky Imaging Primer” by Charles Bracken or the “Mastering PixInsight and the art of Astroimage Processing” by by Rogelio Bernal Andreo
