Posted in the Ever been shy in taking out your camera thread and posted some astro setups.

Well you don't have to own a big telescope and big $$$ to do astrophotography. Time lapse is fun too....

Astrophotography is very demanding on the shooter and on the equipment (weight, performance, technicality). More so than wildlife/birding, sports etc. I mean you shoot all night, and sometimes with many "subs" needed, you shoot a couple of nights, hours of images, then stack them up just to get 1 image!
Entry level with refractors and dSLRs (there's an actively cooled imager with the smaller refractor)


*don't know if 9V Orion images will come in or not*
