Digital Astrophotography - The State of the Art

Ratledge D. | Edition: 2005 | 177 pages

The CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) has revolutionized optical astronomy. CCD cameras can provide imaging that is ten times more sensitive than the fastest photographic film, producing a digitized image that is easily computer-enhanced using a standard PC.

Intended to help CCD camera users get the best possible results from their equipment, this book includes contributions from a worldwide range of experts enhanced with many beautiful photographs, including some in full color.

The book is essential reading for astronomers who are either using a CCD camera in their work, considering buying one, or simply want to know more about today's available technology.

Handbook of CCD Astronomy
Cambridge Observing Handbooks for Research Astronomers.

By Steve B. Howell
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Number Of Pages: 222
Publication Date: 2006-04-03

Charge-Coupled Devices (CCDs) are the state-of-the-art detector in many fields of observational science. Updated to include all of the latest developments in CCDs, this second edition of the Handbook of CCDAstronomy is a concise and accessible reference on all practical aspects of using CCDs.

Starting with their electronic workings, it discusses their basic characteristics and then gives methods and examples of how to determine these values. While the book focuses on the use of CCDs in professional observationalastronomy , advanced amateur astronomers, and researchers in physics, chemistry, medical imaging, and remote sensing will also find it very valuable.

Tables of useful and hard-to-find data, key practical equations, and new exercises round off the book and ensure that it provides an ideal introduction to the practical use of CCDs for graduate students, and a handyreference for more experienced users.

The New CCD Astronomy

Paperback: 476 pages
Publisher: New Astronomy Press (January 1, 2002)

The New CCD Astronomy is the #1 source of information about CCD astrophotography. It contains everything you need to know to become proficient at CCD imaging. Hundreds of detailed illustrations show you how to select equipment, take pictures, and process your images with a variety of software.

This book cover everything you need to know: How a CCD camera works; How to achieve critical focus; How to choose the right equipment (mount, telescope, and CCD camera); How to autoguide, and more.

You'll also learn the secrets of color imaging, the art of noise reduction, many image processing techniques, and specialized techniques for planets, nebulae, galaxies, etc.

Free with purchase: a one-year subscription to the New CCD Astronomy web site, including: a complete online version of the book; additional fully-illustrated tutorials; discussion groups moderated by the author; searchable database of CCD imaging targets; and a number of free software tools to improve your CCD imaging results.

Ron Wodaski is dedicated to making astrophotography accessible to everyone. He has written books and magazine articles on astrophotography, and recently provided a number of software tools to make image processing easier than ever.

The Handbook of Astronomical Image Processing

By Richard Berry, James Burnell

Publisher: Willmann-Bell 2005-08 | 684 Pages | ISBN: 0943396824 | DJVU | 22 MB

The book DOES NOT tell you how to operate the software that comes with it, it's more of a bible for ANY type astrophotography which happens to include the best darn software for image processing you could find. Just don't confuse the two. Even if you have image processing software now you NEED this book!

The 100 Best Targets for Astrophotography (2009)

16.3 Mb | SharingMatrix | Astrophotography Book | 363 Pages

Any amateur astronomer who is interested in astrophotography, particularly if just getting started, needs to know what objects are best for imaging in each month of the year. These are not necessarily the same objects that are the most spectacular or intriguing visually. The camera reveals different things and has different requirements. What objects in the sky tonight are large enough, bright enough, and high enough to be photographed? This book reveals, for each month of the year, the choicest celestial treasures within the reach of a commercial CCD camera.

Helpful hints and advice on framing, exposures, and filters are included. Each deep sky object is explained in beautiful detail, so that observers will gain a richer understanding of these astronomical objects.

This is not a book that dwells on the technology of CCD, Webcam, wet, or other types of astrophotography. Neither is it a book about in-depth computer processing of the images (although this topic is included). Detailed discussions of these topics can be found in other publications. This book focuses on what northern latitude objects to image at any given time of the year to get the most spectacular results.

Detection of Light: From the Ultraviolet to Submillimeter

By George Rieke
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Number Of Pages: 384
Publication Date: 2002-11-15

Detection of Light provides a comprehensive overview of the important approaches to photon detection from the ultraviolet to the submillimeter spectral regions. This expanded and fully updated second edition discusses recently introduced types of detector: superconducting tunnel junctions, hot electron bolometer mixers, and fully depleted CCDs. It also includes historically important devices such as photographic plates. Material from many disciplines is combined into a comprehensive and unified treatment of the detection of light, with emphasis on the underlying physical principles.

The author covers a wide variety of detectors, and devotes some considerable amount of space to less standard detectors (e.g. blocked impurity band) which are hard to find in textbooks. The level is above a Physics Today or IEEE Spectrum exposition, but less than in a good monograph of the Semiconductors and Semimetals series type.
Would be good for courses based primarily on describing detectors for astronomy or scientific instrumentation. However, does not give much coverage to HgCdTe, a workhorse in the 3-5 and 8-12 micron ranges, and does not cover some fairly standard descriptions (e.g. RoA product) of noise for such detectors. Also not very useful for photodiodes for telecom, and the descriptions of avalanche photodiodes and things like 1/f noise are skimpy at best.

The author gets points for at least trying to cover readout issues and for often giving simple quantitative models describing the physics behind many types of detectors in a short readable format.
