How To Clean Telescope Optics

Cleaning telescope optics is a question that gets thrown about a lot. In truth cleaning our optics isn’t something that needs doing all that often. In fact over-cleaning them could be detrimental to their health. So clean the telescope lenses or mirrors only when they begin to get really bad, or begin to affect image quality. In this article I’ll share my workflow for how I treat my telescope lenses, filters, camera sensors and camera lenses.

Image Editing

Image processing. Image editing. Whichever way you call it, this is the art of taking your stacked images into software to edit them in order to tease out the beautiful colours and details that you’ve photographed. A huge part of the hobby that is, arguably, as complex if not more so than the actual image acquisition!
