I would like to start with astrophotograpy and was wondering if you all could give me some tips. I'm starting light with a 80mm goto telescope and a cheap SLR camera.
DocMallard Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014
You need a sturdy, STABLE mount to start off with.

Usually a German Equatorial is needed for astrophotography.

You need a mean to accurately follow the object as well.

The BBC are wanting to stop the television program "The Sky at Night" the worlds longest running TV program

There is a petition to try and save this national institution… 

Please think about saving this educational jewel of a program
