Taking photos of astronomical objects like stars, planets, and meteors, celestial events like lunar or solar eclipses and other phenomena of the night sky all fall under the spacey umbrella of astrophotography. Astrophotography revolutionized the field of professional astronomical research as long-time exposures made it possible to record images of stars and awe-inspiring nebulae that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. Eventually, optical telescopes were designed to record light using photographic plates, essentially functioning like giant cameras.
