At ProAstrophotography you can buy images of astronomy objects roughly divided into 3 categories:

  1. Milky Way or Night Sky Pictures. These images are usually shot using only a DSLR camera or a DSLR camera placed on a mount whose main purpose is to compensate for the rotation of the earth.
  2. Planetary Astrophotography. The pictures from this category cover Solar system objects like the Sun, the Moon, various planets and planet Moons. Occasionally more rare objects photos will be added as well like asteroids, comets etc.
  3. Deep Sky Astrophotography. This category offers photos of a various objects outside of our Solar System. These are the true wonders of the Universe. Here you can find various types of objects like star clusters, nebulae and distant galaxies.

No. We sell only images as downloadable files.

At Proastrophotography.com, we strongly believe that Price is what you pay and value is what you get.

To create one astronomy picture a lot of time has to be put in and it requires a set of specialized equipment. You would usually need large telescope, high quality mount with auto tracking capability, camera add-on, high quality DSLR or CCD camera, various filters and maybe more. Even when you are in possession of such equipment, you need to capture the right time when an object is in the right place, which means not only good timing during a night but also the right time of the year and a night without moon to picture faint objects.
Also good location is not so easy to find. You need to escape the city lights be as far away as possible from any sort of light pollution.


Once the picture is taken, some sort of image post-processing or stacking of multiple photos into a single image might be needed to extract the desired details out of the image(s). Various expensive image correction software might be needed for such processing.

At Proastrophotography.com, we are trying to find a good balance between all this expenses and effort put by our astrophotographers, and offering a fair price to our customers.
