Sometimes you will want to record the image of an object you observe through the telescope. Simply placing your camera up to the lens of the eyepiece and taking a few snaps, may work for some of the brightest of celestial objects like the Moon or the Planets. But to capture faint Galaxies or Nebulae requires a more dedicated imaging setup. Taking breathtaking shots of deep sky objects requires a lot of hard work and dedication. In the end you will have something that you can be proud to show to your friends and colleagues.
