Astro photography is one of the more interesting, and frustrating, ways to expand the hobby. Colors and details you cannot see with your eye are easily picked up in a photo. And, if you can achieve consistent results, and have the time, many university programs need amateurs to collect data for various projects.

As is painfully obvious with the images I have on this web site, I am far from an expert. I learn something new every time I take a camera out and my images keep getting better.

This is presented as a "What I Have Learned", not as an expert reference. Just some hints and suggestions that I have either learned the hard way, or been given by others.
