Those are awesome! When is the last one dated? Colour??

I wonder.... reckon some of these shots are good enough to run through processing software...? Wonder if we could bring out more detail in them / curb some errors.... Though I love them how they are... I wonder what is in them, which they couldn't have seen without processing?

I'm going to give it a quick go.

If you have managed to aquire any early astrograph images, please do not hesitate to post them here. I am sure everyone would appreciate seeing more early efforts pre- 1920's. Thanks

I am amazed at the precision of the tracking given that length of exposure in those day to get a photo like that

I believe that was taken, whilst their main lens was on back order. The GRS is huge isn't it!!

Its just magic to think that people have been born, lived full and long lives and died of old age between the time these images were taken and when i was born. Thanks for posting it up.

Star Camera

This is a photo of the "Star Camera" setup. The second is the partial remains of it. It is responsible for taking these shots. I believe they were all taken with it.
