Point and Shoot: These photos were taken with small digital cameras, known as point-and-shoots for their simplicity of operation in normal usage. However, the usage here was not normal. Newer images were taken with the camera pointed through the eyepiece of a telescope, a process known as digiscoping. Older photos had the camera on a tripod tethered to a computer and triggered remotely. Click on any image to load larger image and start slide show.
