Perhaps the best book on the topic is Astrophotography for the Amateur
by Michael A. Covington
Published by Cambridge University Press
ISBN 0-521-64133-0 (hardback), 0-521-62740-0 (paperback)

This is considered by many to be the ultimate guide for the amateur. The amount of information is amazing, so it may be a bit overwhelming, but you quickly get used to it. Theory is explained, along with appropriate math equations, etc. MANy practical suggestions, etc. Well worth the money. A 3rd edition is in the works that will have a much expanded section on CCD (currect volume devotes only 40-50 pages (I think)).
