Astrophotographer RBA Premium Astrophotography
Rogelio Andreo, Astrophotographer
Introduced by: Moira Sullivan
Astrophotography is a specialized type of photography for recording photos of astronomical objects and large areas of the night sky. The first photograph of an astronomical object (the Moon) was taken in 1840, but it was not until the late 19th 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. This is done by long time exposure since both film and digital cameras can accumulate and sum light photons over these long periods of time. Rogelio Andreo’s incredible photography work has won praise and awards in both the scientific community and as stunning art. His presentation will feature amazing pictures of “the universe out there”, including many from his award-winning book, “Deep Sky Colors”.
