This book by Jerry Lodriguss explains how to take, and process, beautiful high-resolution photos of the Sun, Moon and planets by recording the video from Live View in your Canon DSLR camera.

Learn how to use "Lucky Imaging" techniques to record craters on the Moon, sunspots on the Sun, and high-resolution detail on the planets such as the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, Cassini's division in the rings of Saturn, and the polar cap and surface details on Mars.

Lucky Imaging records hundreds, or even thousands, of frames in a short video of several minutes length with special Live View capture programs. Unique freeware planetary image-processing programs are then used to analyze each frame in the video and pick out the sharpest ones that were "lucky" to be captured during a moment of good seeing where fine detail is recorded. These frames are then composited together by the program and sharpening is applied. Step-by-step instructions for using both video capture and image processing programs are provided.
