I am a total newbee in astrophotograhy. In the initial learning mode. I've been a visual observer for many years and now taking the plunge with a simple Celestron 8" HD Edge. I also decided to start learning using my Canon EOS 50D using "Backyard EOS" for camera control.
Since I bought the Celestron in June, southern California has had nothing but horrible skies. Well actually they have been deteriorating for some time but this summer, Sheezsh!
We visit Little Blair Valley in the Anza Borrego Desert and Mt Palomar whenever life does not interrupt.
