Photograph the Stars From Wired How-To Wiki Comets are a great starting point for amateur astrophotographers. Photo by aroberts via Flickr. It sounds like something you'd have to be a pro to attempt, but taking pictures of the heavens is easy to do with the even the simplest of set-ups. Here are some tips for getting the best results when you tilt your camera towards the heavens. This page is part of a wiki. What You'll Need A digital camera that lets you control the exposure and focus settings manually. Pick a spot The first thing you'll need to do is pick a prime location. Pick a spot far away from the city, preferably in the mountains, in the desert or in a rural area. Check with your local astronomy group (almost all of them are online) for their recommendations. Trails or no trails? Stars are very dim, so to photograph the night sky, you're going to have to keep your camera's shutter open for several minutes. Star trails can look awesome. Mount your camera to a telescope You can also build your own. Practice!

Les éclipses totales de Soleil à un endroit donné de la Terre sont des événements très rares et de courte durée (pas plus de 8 minutes[1]). L'éclipse totale de 1999 en Europe était considérée, au moment où elle eut lieu, comme l'éclipse qui eut le plus d'observateurs de l'histoire humaine[2] , ce qui a permis d'augmenter l'information du public sur cette curiosité particulière.
