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.
