Recommended for night photographers I always loved photography and planned on one day getting a nice camera and taking some wonderful shots of the sky but when I did they looked nothing like the ones I see online so I bought this book and while I’m no where near a pro thankfully I can now take some beautiful pictures showing the milky way, I can paint with light, and I can make star trails.

Nailed it! A great guide for night sky photography. Simple and to the point. Not a lot of “filler”. Perfect size to take on the go. I have been in the photography business for over 30 years and this book taught me a few new things, yet it’s also a great book for the not so experienced photographer. If you want to get out there and shoot the night sky…look no further! Jennifer Wu nailed it!
