About the Book
LeRoy Goering received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics from the University of Minnesota in 1977. Mr. Goering’s aerospace engineering career spanned 36 years during which he became expert in astroinertial navigation and development of laboratory simulations of complex systems. He participated in a series of projects from the Space Shuttle to Unmanned Combat Air vehicles (UCAV) before ending his career in 2012. LeRoy then began his pursuit of astrophotography, set up a backyard observatory and developed this reference handbook documenting the hardware, software, and processes required for successful astrophotography.
