Astrophotography is it science or art? Do the images received as a result of deep processing of a huge massive of single shots reflect reality or are they in some sense drawing? Disputes on it are going constantly, however, it is impossible not to notice that for the last 15-20 years the technology of shooting and processing has leaped forward and that was earlier accessible only to large observatories, now is achievable by modest means of the amateur  astronomers. Indeed, powerful computers, digital cameras, fine software appeared. However, the main factor hindering shooting from the surface of the Earth remains the restless ocean of terrestrial atmosphere. Preparing for the next observations, one can never predict, what will be received as a result. Therein lies the charm of lunar and planetary astrophotography. In some ways we are like the fishermen casting their rods into the dark depths of the lake in hopes of a good bite. And we're always really pleased when our hook catches a big and beautiful fish.

On this site our works in the field of astrophotography received in difficult struggle with atmospheric turbulence are presented. We wish you pleasant viewing!
