Schmidtcamera's Images


Photographs of the heavens taken with a small Schmidt camera have impressed me dramatically and definitively. Usually, dim, subtle light from the celestial objects can be photographed only with long exposures. However, the fast optical configuration of the F 1.5 Schmidt, can accomplish the task in a relatively short time, and show us different aspects of the Universe which are unknown to most of us. The night sky, a quiet world, becomes active at once when imaged, displaying continuous change, staging a universal drama. Every little image on the film, containing information about countless celestial objects and their history, seems to literally jump at our eyes when enlarged in print or when displayed on the computer screen. The more we magnify an image, the more faint, distant worlds that come into view, stirring the imagination and making me wonder, full of curiosity and thirst for better and sharper images, about the worlds that lie there in the depths of space and time. Fortunately, there still remain very many worlds that I want to photograph.
