Stellar and Deep-Sky Photography
by Peter Alway
|If astronomy is the study of stars, then here's some real astronomy. These are long-exposure sky photos, some piggybacked on telescopes, some jsut with tripods on the ground. Just a reminder to appreciate the sky above you when you go out at night. If you need help identifying stars, go check out the planisphere page.

|This was a 12-second exposure taken from Schoolcraft College. Using "Curves" in Photoshop, I was able to darken the light-polluted brown background without oblitterating the Orion Nebula.
|You can see the "Teapot" of Saggitarius near the bottom of this milky way image. the wierd blue-green color comes from using color infrared slide film. Note the airplane trails across this image. I took this shot nearly 20 years ago from Peach mountain.
