    Some of you may be aware of this , but astrophotography is a bona fide hobby of mine, and I recently got some new scientific equipment to hone my skills a bit. I thought I'd share with you some recent shots of mine - and hopefully, there are other forum members who are into it as well.

    Waxing moon 23 Aug 2018 - 720mm F/7 ISO 800 1/1000 sec. Nikon D850.

    And the Andromeda galaxy. As fall progresses into winter, I hope to make this one of my pet projects - weather willing.

    I acualyl learned something new recently - some of the stars we see in constellations are actually galaxies - did a whole lot more reading. Less boring than one would think (and very humbling)

    What kind of equipment are you using to get these pics? I'm sure it's not only the camera you're using. I love astronomy and follow everything that NASA does and waiting eagerly what TESS finds and James-Webb after that.
