A Practical Guide to EAA Astro-Photography

Welcome !

This guide is based on my own experiences in getting started with modern Electronically Assisted Astronomy (EAA) after decades of abstinence from any practical use of astronomical equipment and contains the result of my experiences, many hints from the Internet and was originally intended to serve as a reminder and reference book for myself to avoid repeating mistakes once made.  I hope that other interested parties can also benefit from this publication and I welcome any feedback. The content of this guide is a work in progress - there's more to come!

Have fun and let me know what's missing or wrong in my guide to astrophotography.

*) New: This guide is now also available as a PDF draft and as a Windows Help file (*.CHM), although both formats still need a lot of work.
