Terry.. do you see categories such as "photometry, astrometry, spectroscopy, survey and discovery imaging" as sub-categories under 'Astrophotography' or is there a higher level of 'Research/Science/Discovery' that sits at the same level as Astrophotography? What should it be called?

The distinction that has been important for me has been between Astrophotography (complex mounts/scopes etc) and Night Sky Photography (simple tripod/DSLR). On that basis I see the research fields being types of Astrophotography but it could easily be a new category on its own given that the purpose/intent is so different?
