Summary:Patrick Moore’s Practical Astronomy Series VISUAL ASTRONOMY UNDER DARK SKIES A New Approach to Observing Deep Space Modern astronomical telescopes, along with other advances in technology, have brought the deep sky – star clusters, nebulae and the galaxies – within visual reach of amateur astronomers. It isn’t necessary to image deep-sky objects in order to see them; you look at them in real-time by using modern observing techniques and enhancement technology. The first requirement is a truly dark observing site.
