Time to Put Away the Film

For many years the only way you could take a decent picture of what you were seeing through your telescope was to attach special fittings to it and attach a top quality 35mm cameras to it. While this did produce very high quality images, you had no way to know whether you actually go the shot or not until you had the film developed and the images printed. Today’s astronomy cameras such as those available at are all digital and offer you several advantages.

Not the least of which is the ability to monitor what the camera is seeing and capture as many images as you want. The pictures are all very clear and by using the right software, you can enlarge and enhance them so that you can see the details very clearly and of course you can print off as many copies as you need to as often as you need them.

In the end it really depends on the person who is taking the pictures and what they expect to get out of them.

Most people have long since switched over to using CCD astronomy cameras such as those available from for a variety of reasons. Cost plays a large part in the decision, but is not the main reason.
