Hello everyone.

I figured I'd post a few images here from one of my other hobbies (obsessions), Astrophotography.

I am a long time photographer, using everything from digital medium format, to film (35mm to 8x10 large format) and even wet plate photography. A little over a year ago, I decided to try my hand at another type of photography, astrophotography, and bought a cheap tracking mount. I was INSTANTLY hooked.

A month after my first try at an astro photo, I was already building a dome for a backyard observatory. A year later, and after way too much money was spent, I have some great setups and am having the time of my life capturing our universe.

Here are a few of my favorites from the past ~year of astro imaging.

Gorgeous, fascinating, beautiful shots!

And you know what... I think Joey J5 might be able to make you a frame with resin that mimics one of those shots... well I know he has made a few galaxy themed ones anyway!

Thank you for sharing those pics! Love them

Beautiful work just excellent I'm glad you have such a hobby and posted those even though they make me realize how small and insignificant I am compared to the universe!
