I used to be like that till the fateful day I pointed my telephoto zoom at the night sky and took a picture of Andromeda. I was hooked so badly I got myself a telescope and since have sunk the majority of my spare time into learning the dark art (see what I did there?) of deep sky imaging.
Deep sky (DS) imaging is a numbers game and very technical, which shouldn’t come as a surprise as there is very little light to be had and it’s paramount to have a good understanding of how your camera’s sensor performs at the low end of the histogram. In DS imaging you’ll get to the bottom of what a RAW file really is, why your sensor has a color filter array (CFA) and why a RAW image straight out of camera is soft and requires pre-sharpening. Besides, you’ll get some stunning images.
