No, of course those sources are not "canon",
Why not? Unlike Trek, Star Wars cannon seems to occasionally include Expanded Universe material, such as books, the Clone Wars TV series, even video games. It has to be said that there doesn't seem to be a hard and fast rule as to what is considered canon, it's more a case of what Lucasfilm say is and isn't. Which is why I asked if this particular information was canon.

What physical law of the universe could possibly have prevented the Death Star from shooting at non-planets?
As Hartzilla2007 pointed out, the problems are technological ones. The second Death Star had systems it's predecessor lacked, allowing it to fire a low power shot every three minutes, whilst improved targeting systems allowed it to fire accurately at capital ships.
