What does "Deep sky photography" mean

There are celestial objects outside our solar system that can be easily observed with modern optical systems. In amateur astronomy, the term deep sky refers to observable celestial objects that are located outside the solar system. These include, among other things, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies.

What exactly is "remote-controlled astronomy"

A remote-controlled telescope is operated by an observer via the Internet and is located in an observatory with an automatic system. This offers the unique opportunity to record deep sky objects that are difficult to observe from your own location.
