Ever been out at night and taken some photographs of a glowing, low-slung harvest moon? If yes, you've already been exposed to the world of astrophotography.

Astrophotography is photography of astronomical objects and events in space, such as stars, the sun, planets, asteroids, galaxies, meteor showers, comets, and anything from the moon to the Milky Way. It can be a point-and-shoot camera, the Hubble Space Telescope, or any other type of camera.

It can be divided into two basic classes: long-exposure photography, which captures star trails or very dim objects, and short-exposure photography, which captures brightly lit objects or night landscapes with the night sky.

Is it for professionals or hobbyists?

For stargazing professionals, astrophotography is simply a matter of pointing a big-budget telescope at the night sky and letting sophisticated imaging equipment do its thing.


For hobbyists and amateurs dealing with a more limited field of vision, the process takes patience, discipline and a knowledge of photography techniques that can produce the desired effect on any camera setup. Either way, the results can be spectacular in themselves.


How should I start?

Here are some amazing and easy to follow tutorials to start your journey and capture the space!
