All the positive feedback I’ve received for my recent attempts at lunar photography have made me more enthusiastic than ever about getting into astrophotography. I’ve already got a few books on the subject; truth be told, there’s a bit of a learning curve. It’s going to take me a while to get good at this.
We all do it -- ogle over the astrophotographs taken by the masters. The deep-sky images look so exquisite with their masses of detail and perfectly round, pinpoint stars. We know they didn't come easily.
As with picking a camera, picking the best telescope for your needs will depend on a number of different factors: Telescope Attributes - Telescopes are designed to gather light and bring it to focus so that the image can be examined in detail with an eyepiece, or recorded on film or with a digital camera. Telescopes reveal fainter objects than can be seen with the eye because they gather more photons than the eye can gather. Smaller details can be seen because they also magnify objects.

The Constellation of Orion, the Hunter Orion is the most famous and distinctive constellation in the winter night sky. Red-giant star Betelgeuse shines yellow in the upper left-center of the photo, and blue-white Rigel is at bottom center. Between Betelgeuse and Rigel are three distinctive, bright, second magnitude stars in a row, making up the belt of Orion. Diffuse faint red emission nebulae are also seen scattered throughout the image, including the Orion Nebula below the three belt stars, and the Rosette Nebula in the upper left hand corner of the photo.
