The art of photographing the night sky with stars, planets, Moon, galaxies and nebulae and star clusters is called astrophotography. Astrophotography is the modern way of collecting data and analysing it as compared to older days where the observations were recorded by hand using data and descriptions. Today virtually every big and small possible observatory record observation by means of taking images and hence analyse it for better comparison and observing differences.
Astrophotography is also a way to show astronomy as a piece of art by taking coloured images of the celestial objects and beautify using different compositions. Dive in to learn about the world of astrophotography.
