You Can Photograph the Night Sky

Shooting Stars has simple instructions for getting you started using your camera under the stars. The only other piece of equipment you need to get started tonight is a tripod.

In addition to simple advice about the camera settings to use for each style of night sky photography, Shooting Stars provides detailed discussion of the finer points of imaging in low light conditions. It’s a reference you’ll keep coming back to and will help even professional photographers learn more about their camera and how to use it at night.

  • Part 1, The Sky at Night, introduces some basic astronomy concepts, to help you understand what you can expect to see at night from different places on Earth and at different times of the year.
  • Part 2, Night Sky Photography, is the heart of the book. It begins by discussing your camera and lenses and how to use them to turn the faint light of the night sky into stunning images. Most importantly, it describes three techniques for how to get accurate focus at night when your autofocus fails you. At least one of these techniques is guaranteed to work with whatever camera and lens you are using. This section also describes additional equipment and accessories that will enable you to do more with your camera at night and help make the experience more enjoyable.
  • Part 3 covers Image Processing, concentrating on the particular techniques and steps you will need to get the most out of your night sky images. Examples and screen captures are provided for Photoshop, Lightroom, ACDSee and Aperture but the instructions can easily be applied using any other image processing application.
  • Part 4, Wonders of the Night Sky, will inspire you to get outside with your camera more often. This final part covers interesting events, features and phenomena that you can see at night and how to apply night sky photography techniques to capture them. This part also features many of Phil’s stunning images and the stories behind them.
