Astrophotography is the technique that allows to obtain great images of the Universe’s bodies: from the planets to the moon, from galaxies to nebula , from the Sun to the star clusters. Astrophotography of some objects may be simple while for other, especially because of their low brightness, it’s more difficult and may require special instruments and techniques. Thanks to the digital revolution that went in photography in the last 10 years, astrophotography made great steps forward, and everyone can get great pictures of the universe using the right instruments.
