Just Do It. Getting Started in Astrophotography
Astrophotography can be among the most challenging aspects of this hobby, requiring patience, precision, of course photons. But you don’t have to wait until you own that $10,000 scope or mount. Capturing good astrophotos begins with knowing how to use the gear you currently own, or can soon acquire, and analyzing the images to see what you need to do to make them better. One word of caution; the drive to produce better and better photos will place a serious strain on you self restraint.
