Why isnt there visible light astronomy?

That was the first---Started with Galileo. and still goes on, especially in EXOPLANET Search.----But we would MISS quite a lot by just looking at visible light alone.

There is. I don't understand how you think there isn't.

Well, DUH! Look up "Hubble Deep Field" and look at some pretty awe-inspiring astronomy done in the visible light spectral range.

What a strange question. It's going on every time you look at the sky. You see stars in visible light. Why is that not astronomy?

There is Visible Light Astronomy Skippy
We can look at our Solar System planets and nearby Stars through Visible Light Telescopes
Even one you might have at home
Even Hubble uses it mostly
Some objects may be difficult to see but with special filters and different Wavelengths they can be clear as day
Light makes everything visable

A vast majoity of telescopes on Earth are visible light telescopes.

Well, using visible light is how astronomy got started, and it’s still going strong... every kid who gets a telescope for their birthday is using visible light.

there is. In fact, it has existed since before any other type.

Living under a bridge does tend to restrict your view!
