Abstract

Early astronomical photographs made in the 1840s were taken using the daguerreotype process, but it was messy (using iodine and bromine vapour, and mercury heated to 75°C) and produced images on metal that could not be copied. It was also relatively insensitive to light, and so was limited to very bright objects like the Sun or Moon.
