From the reviews: "Kier comes to the rescue with targets that are well placed at different times during each month. ... Each target has a colour image and a description, plus advice on the equipment you'll need. There's useful advice on processing too. ... seasoned imagers will enjoy this book." (Steve Richards, Sky at Night Magazine, February, 2010) "This book is one of the Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy series from Springer, aimed at the practising ... amateur astronomer. ... The book's intent is to provide a visually compelling list of the 100 most interesting deep sky objects from the perspective of a digital imager, more precisely of the CCD user. ... This book is a good starter for going beyond the early shots and provides a reasonable reference on what to expect from each target ... ." (Andrea Tasselli, Journal of the British Astronomical Association, Vol. 120 (1), 2010) "Ruben Kier, a highly accomplished astrophotographer, has compiled an impressive list of 100 objects, arranged in order of when they are best placed for observers in the Northern Hemisphere. ... Though the book is clearly aimed at the established imager ... . I was particularly impressed at how well some deep sky objects can now be imaged even with the full moon in the sky. The book will serve as an inspiration to those wishing to take their CCD imaging to the next level." (Neil English, Astronomy Now, May, 2010)
