Not all amateur astronomers who live in a suburban location realize just how very effective a "chilled-chip" astronomical CCD-camera and software can be at cutting through seemingly impenetrable light-pollution. "CCD Astrophotography from the Suburbs" details one man's approach to the problem of getting high-quality astronomical images under light-polluted conditions. Adam Stuart has written this reference book for all amateur astronomers who are interested in CCD imaging, especially those who have to work under suburban conditions. The book outlines the materials and (commercially-available) equipment used for high-quality imaging. The many wonderful images Dr. Stuart has produced allow the reader to see the product of - initially - a fellow beginner's efforts. The glorious images found in numerous books, and especially those seen in "Sky and Telescope" magazine - might seem out of reach. But this is not really the case. Respectable images are attainable with modest equipment. This book outlines a complete and thoroughly tested working program for every beginner to achieve high-quality digital imaging.
