"The Zone System grew out of the CCD Imaging Camps I held for the last several years in New Mexico. It is based on painstaking research into how Photoshop works - and why it works the way it does. You won't just learn some useful ways to use Curves; you'll learn the type of curve to use, the correct way to integrate Curves and Levels, and more. The most important thing you'll learn, however, is how to take the guesswork out of processing astronomical images." -- Ron Wodaski
The NewAstro Zone System for Astro Imaging book is based on watching students learn how to work with Photoshop at the Camps. It helps readers to progress by breaking down the steps in Photoshop to their fundamentals Further your education by putting the steps back together in a way that makes sense for astro image processing and showing how to process an image from end to end. You'll find information on developing new ideas on color, signal to noise ratio, and other topics, but the biggest idea that brings everything together is the Zone System itself. By breaking the image down into manageable zones, you learn how to get the most out of any image you process.
