This category comprises of photos taken through a semi wide or wide angle camera lens. The photos here are not taken through a telescope. The photos are taken through standard fully manual cameras that ride piggyback on the telescope (see picture below). As the Earth rotates, the stars constantly move through the sky, so I use the main telescope to track the stars for the duration of the exposure (anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours). These wide angle images allow me to capture large star scapes such as constellations, stella panoramics, comets and more.
