Can I take pictures of galaxies and other deep space objects?

As good as the Hubble?

Anybody can take pictures of deep space. All you need is a camera that can be mounted on a tripod. Once you've chosen a target, set the camera up and open the lens. Pictures should be exposed for less than thirty seconds or you will have star trails which result from the natural movement of the Earth.
