The Astrophotographer's Journal | Astrophotography Book

Updated: Jun 8, 2023

The Astrophotographer’s Journal is a portable notebook that we created for the purpose of recording observations, cataloging your captures or issues you encounter, and writing down the wonderful memories created by the hobby of astrophotography.

When you have the whole night to stargaze, you might find some interesting constellations or rare events that you don't want to forget! Journaling is one of Dalia's pastime hobbies because it forces a person to slow down and consider their thoughts. Writing things down is also a great way to remember special moments or feelings. Part of astrophotography is having a good sense of the night sky, and the best way to recall that information is to look up and take notes.

This book contains more than 200 pages to memorialize your stargazing and imaging sessions, as well as a useful chart on the last pages to index exciting or important notes.

Go back and read your logs to see how much progress you have made through the months, the problems you overcame, and the notes taken to improve in the future.

Just as the pioneers of astronomy did in their time, look up and take notes of your observations as you are the author of this star-filled journey.
