I got few astrophotography related books and checked what they offer and how modern they are. Books in question are:

* OpenSource Astrophotography 2.2: Your first low cost astro photo from your backyard; Karl Sarnow
* Scientific Astrophotography: How Amateurs Can Generate and Use Professional Imaging Data; Gerald R. Hubbell
* The Astrophotography Manual: A Practical and Scientific Approach to Deep Sky Imaging; Chris Woodhouse
* Astrophotography; Thierry Legault

The review: https://rk.edu.pl/en...tography-books/

I bet there are some interesting reads there!

 

I briefly (about an hour) paged thru a friend's copy of Legault's book and found it very good! I've not seen the others.
