From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search An image of Orion's Belt composited from digitized black and white photographic plates recorded through red and blue astronomical filters, with a computer synthesized green channel. The plates were taken using the Samuel Oschin Telescope between 1987 and 1991. Astrophotography is a specialized type of photography that entails recording images of astronomical objects and large areas of the night sky. The first photographs of an astronomical object (the moon) were taken in the 1840s, but it was not until the late 19th century that advances in technology allowed for detailed stellar photography. Besides being able to record the details of extended objects such as the Moon Sun , and planets , astrophotography has the ability to image objects invisible to the human eye such as dim stars nebulae , and galaxies . This is done by long time exposure since both film and digital cameras can accumulate and sum light photons over these long periods of time. In professional astronomical research photography revolutionized the field, with long time exposures recording hundreds of thousands of new stars and nebulae that were invisible to the human eye, leading to specialized and ever larger optical telescopes that were essentially big “cameras” designed to collect light to be recorded on film. Direct astrophotography had an early role in sky surveys and star classification but over time it has given way to more sophisticated equipment and techniques designed for specific fields of scientific research, with film (and later

School of astrophotography
Posted: February 4th, 2007 by HrAstro You're a proud owner of a telescope, and for some strange reason you also have a camera. So, have you ever wondered whether is it possible to photograph anything? Believe it or not, the answer is yes. For such a purpose any digital camera will do. The only question that remains, is which method should be used. If you own an automatic camera, you'll be limited only to lighter objects like the Moon, or the planets, and the only method which is at your disposal is the Afocal method . If you own a professional SLR digital camera almost all the doors are opened. The only problem may represent the rest of the equipment. view full text

    11. Astrophotography
    Since the photographic emulsion accumulates light throughout its exposure, astrophotography is used to reveal objects which are too faint to observe with the naked eye.
    Astrophotography is a specialised type of photography that entails taking photographs of items in the night sky such as planets stars , and deep sky objects Milky Way in Sagittarius. Unguided 40 sec exposure Since the photographic emulsion accumulates light throughout its exposure, astrophotography is used to reveal objects which are too faint to observe with the naked eye. Astrophotography poses challenges which are distinct from normal photography in that the subject is usually extremely faint. Effective astrophotography requires the use of many of the following techniques:
    • Mounting the camera at the focal point of a large telescope Emulsions designed for low light sensitivity Very long exposure times (one hour or more is common) Tracking the subject to compensate for the rotation of the Earth during the exposure Gas Hypersensitizing of emulsions Use of filters to reduce background fogging due to light pollution of the night sky.
    Since the early 's, most professional observatories switched to using CCD devices for astronomical imaging. They have numerous advantages, with increased sensitivity and more linear response. The principle disadvantage is a significant reduction in the

    (Deep Sky) Astrophotography for Amateurs
    by Olivier THIZY
    I have seen several questions on astrophotography for amateurs, and I was thinking that I could share my experience here. Of course, it will not replace books that one can find on the subject. I strongly recommend "Astrophotography for the Amateur" (Michael Covington) as the book to own if you want to start in this field. Everything described here is from my own experience, and covers only the basics of astrophotography. I am still far away from Fletcher and Hallas, but I enjoy what I do. I tried to explain my own evolution, from simple picture of the sky to prime focus one. It is not the only way, but it helps to practice the basics before going to long focal deepsky astrophotography.
    Before even starting with photography with a telescope, I recommend to practice photography using a simple tripod. There are many things to do with a simple tripod: Moon and Planets at dawn or dusk: choose a nice foreground landscape (trees, mountains...). Evening just after the New Moon are very nice for that. Full Moon set above cities are very nice too. I usualy use a 100-400ASA slide film. Constellations: Using a fast film (I like the Kodak Ektar 1000) and short exposures (30"-45" for a 50mm lens), one can record a lot of details on constellations. I got some nice results on the Milky way, especialy around Sagittarius. Those pictures are also a perfect test for the photo shop: is the sky coming black from their lab?
