Deep Sky Photography with digital cameras

CCD Astrophotography by Jürgen Stein


I am interested in CCD astrophotography for several years. Some of my results are presented on this website. The image galleries show pictures of various deep sky objects. I use conventional amateur astronomical equipment for photography – optics ranging from small telephoto lenses to a 16 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, equatorial mounts and modern CCD cameras.

Most images are taken at light-polluted places located in Germany mainly in the Rhein-Main area.
