These images were taken using different cameras, optics and tracking mounts. In most cases, the exposures were many hours long, even over several nights.
The light captured in these images had been traveling through space for thousands or millions of years, so we see these celestial objects as they existed many many years ago.
From time to time I will release new images, so feel free to visit my site again.
I hope you will enjoy my images on www.distant-lights.at
