The Galaxies on Your Computer Screen with an Astronomy Camera

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

For the avid astronomer there is something very magical about what they see through the lens of their telescope. The hardest part of this magic is trying to share it with others who are not there to see it. Imagine seeing Haley’s Comet as it passed by and not being able to share the sight with someone else because they were not there to see it. If you had a CCD astronomy camera, you could share the images you are seeing with anyone who has a computer, whether they are connected to the Internet or not.

Once you capture and save you images that you have captured with your astronomy camera, you can share them online, print them out or load them up on a flash drive to take with you anywhere you go. This is something you could never do with a film type camera and has opened up a whole new world of sharing to the serious astronomer.
