Astrophotography Can Show You Places You Can Only Dream Of

Astrophotography is one of the most interesting types of photography, but it is also one of the rarest ones. Shooting galaxies, stars and planets is among the the hardest forms of photography, and in order to do it you need to get the right equipment, and also the knowledge and techniques. Few of the problems photographers have to face with when shooting stars are the movement of earth, the low amount of light coming from the objects, and of course - being able to zoom in to see those very-far-away objects. Check out this amazing set of images of galaxies, space dust, Nebula, stars and planets found on Flickr - some taken from earth, some taken from space. Makes you think of how tiny we are compared to what's out there.
