Astrophotography Competition

Astrophotography is a specialized type of photography for recording photos of astronomical objects, celestial events, and areas of the night sky. The first photograph of an astronomical object (the Moon) was taken in 1840, but it was not until the late19th century that advances in technology allowed for detailed stellar photography. Besides being able to record the details of extended objects such as the Moon, Sun, and planets, astrophotography has the ability to image objects invisible to the human eye such as dim stars, nebulae, and galaxies.
These types of astrophotography competitions are undoubtedly the most innovative things for the South Asia since 2014. In that year we envisaged to launch this programme concurrent with the Star Party. And we have silent pride about introducing this trend to our sub-continent. However currently we can see this type of competitions in every night Astronomy quiz competition.
Astrophotography competitors must provide us a small description about their technical information on Mounts, Camera/CCD, Telescopes/Lenses and other Gear information. The competition has 2 sections which is the Best performace category and Most Popular photograph category
