Astrophotography Books

Books are a great way of learning about the night sky. One of the best ways to learn is by reading physical material, which improves your focus and memory on the subject. We have created several books for astrophotographers, including some that you can even write in!


Some Galactic Hunter astrophotography books have digital copies which are cheaper and can be downloaded immediately.

Consider purchasing for yourself or gifting a book to an aspiring astrophotographer you care about.
