Selenography or the history of the Moon
Stars can only be seen at night.
Photographing astronomical objects is very closely connected to the genesis of photography itself.
In 1838, one year before the announcement of the discovery of photography, by the astronomer - politician Arago before the French parliament, the first picture of the moon was taken by Daguerre. Since the beginning of photography the medium was destined to play an important role in astronomy. Or was it vice versa?
