Beginners Guide to Astrophotograph

I have recently bought a Skywatcher 150P on a EQ3-2 mount. I also have a Sony SLT-A35 DSLR. I am looking for some information about starting out in astrophotography. Would be grateful for any information about books, websites etc
Many thanks in anticipation

upgrade my equipment. Help!

I own a. Skyhawk 1145m which I have been happy with but l am now looking to to spend around £1000.00-1250.00 on my hobby. I'd like to start experimenting with astrophotography but don't even have a camera. Should I get a new scope,mount and cheap DSLR and eyepiece/filter set? If so what? Or keep scope an get a decentish mount and a good DSLR, adaptors,filter wheel and eyepiece /filter set? If so what?

Planet altitude question from magazine

Hi,
"The planets" section of the Sky at Night magazine shows the altitude of a planet for a particular date and time. What is this altitude relative to? I live on the south coast of England so is it relative to my southerly horizon?

Many thanks,
Peter
