Deep Field Cosmotography

Deep Field Cosmotography

These photos are taken through my telescopes at magnifications of up to 4000mm focal length. The planetary work is done at 8000mm focal length. Keeping things simple, that is basically an eight metre long camera lens. This is why we call these types of images deep field, because we are peering extremely deep into the universe.
