you for visiting..
Astrophotography is a special form of photography that (uniquely) reveals
objects that are invisible to the unaided eye - the distances within
our macrocosm are so vast that much of it can only be seen by means
of long exposure photographs. The camera, by accumulating light, helps
reveal mysteries of the universe that otherwise remain invisible. The
earth and all of its life forms evolved from the same elements that
gave light to these photographs - it is all part of our natural heritage.
