As I post on various topics with regards to astrophotography I’ll group some of the posts on this Astrophotography Cookbook page as a quick index to some important information and procedures.
No matter what equipment you have, the importance is to be comfortable with it and know what it’s capable of doing. Yes, there’s lots of trial and error, but that’s how you’ll learn your own particular “recipe”.
Everything in astrophotography can be broken down in four easy steps:
- Equipment setup
- Image capture
- Pre-processing (noise reduction, alignment, staking)
- Post-processing (tweaking the image)
