1860s Moon Photographs – Vintage Astronomy

Moon photographs from the 1860s! That is over 150 years ago! The first camera was only invented 40s year earlier. Vintage astronomy, very rad. The photographer was George Washington Wilson(1823-1893) – a pioneer in photography. He created techniques for outdoor picture taking and the mass production of prints.

Bonus picture is of Wilson with his cute dog!
