My Astronomical  images

 

CCD(Charged couple device)  imaging of astronomical objects is extremely demanding for the equipment and the photographer. We are dealing with a moving target that is going around the polar star at sideral rate. Normally CCD imaging requires taking long exposures and stacking of individual and color component frames .

  I use  MAXIMDL/CCD as my main image acquisition software and use Photoshop CS for further processing.
