I'm learning so much so quickly. Like how to deal with light pollution and geosynchronous satellites.

Here are two of my latest.

Andromeda from a dark sky area about an hour away. I redid the edit with darks in my lights to see if it would help with contrast and I believe it did.

Another photo of the Orion Nebula from my backyard in Chattanooga Tn. A very light polluted area, but I dealt with it none the less. I used a clip in astronomic LPS filter. I think I now understand how the light pollution kills the red channel.

Acquisition is perfect, exposure nice and long, tracking seems flawless. You actually clean the sky of satellites? But they're cool!

Processing is a matter of taste.

Is there a thread here that explains the set up to do this kind of photography? It is terrific stuff, but being more if a wildlife shooter, it is pretty foreign to me.

Ken,

It's tricky stuff really in terms of the final product. I'm in the process of writing a blog post about astrophotography on the cheap. I'll post it on here when our new site goes live. :)

In the mean time, check out Forrest Tanaka's video on the process : http://youtu.be/e0JSTF​8SGi4 (external link)

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Thanks! I watched the video...cool stuff. Am looking forward to your blog post. Not sure I have enough computer processor to handle that, but might have to take a swing at it in the future.
