Grant Collier, Collierís Guide to Night Photography in the Great Outdoors, 160 page pdf eBook, $18.95 USD. Also available with video ($72.95) and in signed paperback ($29.95).

Phil Hart, Shooting Stars, 129 page pdf eBook, $19.95 USD.

David Kingham, NIGHTSCAPE, A Complete Guide to Photographing Under the Night Sky, 120 page pdf eBook , $12.00 CD.

Charles,
Thanks very much for posting the links to these eBooks.  I'm also interested in this subject, although I haven't really gotten serious about it.  This might prod me into doing so.
thanks again
Brad

Charles, thanks for the references, and thanks for your own book, which I highly recommend to all Curious Photographers. Even if you know some aspects of the sciences very well, there are tidbits of interest

I figure that it isn't bad form for a user to post the link:
