World-renowned planetary imager Damian Peach releases the first of his new DVD tutorial series High Resolution Astrophotography. Within you'll find more than 2 1/2 hours of detailed video guides on how to photograph the Sun, Moon, and planets. Peach walks you through useful features in popular image-processing programs including RegiStax 6, Aatostakkert!2, WinJUPOS, and Adobe Photoshop to maximize the potential of your own images. He also discusses considerations for choosing the right telescope and camera for planetary photography, and provides a detailed analysis of astronomical seeing conditions and modern forecasting tools.
