I guess you guys may have seen these, but as a total novice with only an intent to get into this field, these images simply blew me away..

Well I hadn't seen it before, so thanks for linking to it. Jaw dropping indeed.

Jaw dropping indeed. The Pillars of Creation shot gets used a lot but is still something otherworldly. A few of the others I had not seen before so thanks for the link.
Trouble is that people tend to compare such images to those taken from the ground but they are not something to aspire to in any manner shape or form. I would much rather judge against images such as those produced by Greg Parker/Noel Carboni
http://ncarboni.home.att.net/Astrophotography.html which though of the highest standard are taken in real world conditions with real world (albeit expensive) equipment.

Gorgeous images, ...and extremely humbling. I think this is where Carl Sagan found God (or at least where he searched for him).
