Astronomical Photography

I love to photograph nature, people, and pets, but it's also fun to shoot a variety of other subjects. I pretty much love reading about any photographer who is shooting the night sky. 

Every day we have this amazing expansive miracle above our heads...the sky. It is filled with beautiful stars and if you really stop to think about how immense and amazing that is it can take your breath away. 

Seeing the stars reminds me of my grandfather. When I was a kid he helped me find the north star, venus, and anything else we could find through a telescope in the backyard. On a clear night I can look up at the stars and feel like that was only yesterday.

So when I was surfing for additional photography articles to read, this Pop Photo article on astronomical photography caught my attention. It's really interesting how the photographer uses a technique of several exposures which he then combines while processing.
