Sample text

Naturally we wish to see – we feel that we should be able to see – similarly clearcut spectacles, the grandest in all the heavens, with our own eyes. But the truth is that galaxies are by several orders of magnitude less sharply defined visually than photographically, for astrophotography vastly exaggerates the contrast (definition) and drastically truncates the dynamic range of the deep-sky images formed by telescopes, thereby severely distorting their brightness profiles. And the distortion is most extreme in the case of face-on spiral galaxies, photographs of which are lovely but resemble very little the corresponding eyepiece views.

No involved stars. 3’ S0– JH: pretty bright, small, round, brighter middle. 170x250: Moderate brightness. Pretty concentrated. Round. Very small. No involved stars. bs Beta Cas 170x250: Soft white. 3’ Sa WH: 3 faint stars + nebula. 170x250: Moderate brightness. Sharply very concentrated. Round. Very small. SE of center is an involved star. 6’ Sc HH: very faint, considerably large, much extended, gradually brighter middle. 170x250: Faint. Broadly very slightly concentrated. A fairly thin edge-on, NE-SW.

Such concern to see galactic “structure” is no doubt due to the pervasive influence of astrophotography. In long-exposure observatory photographs and CCD images galaxies appear well delineated in contour, wonderfully detailed internally, and in general so bold that they almost jump out of the picture books at us.
