Photographing Stars Of The Non-Celebrity Kind

Here's a great guide that's sure to be a godsend for many photographers who like to work after dark. It's Phil Hart's eBook called "Shooting Stars," which isn't about paparazzi photography but rather about photographing the night sky. Filled with information on equipment, technique and artistic vision, Hart's guide is 140 pages covering everything you need to know about photographing stars, from the necessary equipment (like tripods, bubble levels, filters and flashlights) to the best techniques for making beautiful motion blur shots of star trails or tack sharp images that allow you to explore the milky way. The digital download can be had for the low price of only $25. Check out this detailed review at the Pixiq site, then head over to Hart's site to purchase your own copy.
