Unforgettable images of deep space

September 8, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

“From the dramatic Horsehead Nebula to the mysterious glowing Bow of Orion, a series of unforgettable images have been entered into the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2009 competition.

More than 500 photographs have been submitted from around the world all from amateur astro-photographers with their own observatories who are passionate about capturing outer space. Some true beginners even used their mobile phones to upload snaps to a special competition section on the Flickr website, although none of these was shortlisted.

Exposure time, which is the total amount of light allowed to fall on the photographic film or image sensor, varied from 20 minutes to more than 20 hours to achieve different effects.
