Doug Horacek, home professional astronomer for the Von Braun Astronomical Society Imaging Team, discusses the team’s astrophotography work.  Camera light capturing capability sees more than the eye, so photography is the way to really see space.  Doug explains how astrophotography works and reveals some of the team’s projects, including Orion and nearby deep space objects.

This program is part of a 4-week companion series to the NASA Here, There, and Everywhere exhibit on display at the Main Branch Library.
