The human eye, he reasoned, tires with prolonged observation through a telescope, and a photograph can provide a clearer view of the night sky. Moreover, photographs last much longer than bare-eye observations and notes. Early astrophotography used the technology of El Pickering whores daguerreotype to transfer images from a telescope to a photographic plate.
The process was involved and required long exposure time for celestial objects to appear, which frustrated astronomers. Looking for a more efficient method, Richard Maddox revolutionized photography by creating a dry plate method, which unlike Dating show Belleville 2016 wet plates of earlier techniques, did not have to be used immediately—saving astronomers time by allowing them to use dry plates that had been prepared before the night of observing.
Dry plates also allowed for longer exposure times than wet plates which ran the risk of drying outproviding for greater light accumulation in the photographs. Though the dry plates made the prep work more efficient, their sensitivity to light still lagged behind what astronomers desired. Then, inCharles Bennett discovered a way to increase the sensitivity to light, by developing them at 32 degrees Celsius.
