Astrophotography is the art of imaging of astronomical objects, usually through telescopes. Above: The Black Eye Galaxy, imaged March - April 2015 at the BSU Observatory. Distance: 24 million light years.
There is nothing quite like seeing a planet, galaxy, nebula or star cluster with your own eyes through a telescope. However, astrophotography can catch lovely detail and color that the human eye cannot detect alone.
Images have been taken through our large and small telescopes, the old and new facility, various cameras, and by various photographers. Please explore our image gallery.
