Recently I have become involved in astronomy and imaging the night skies. Given we have many clear and acceptably dark skies through much of Arizona, I am surprised I hadn't picked up a serious telescope earlier. Combining interpretation, astronomy, photography, and image processing skills to develop pictures of our night skies is enjoyable and challenging. It amazes me that I can attach a digital camera to a telescope and photograph a galaxy that is barely visible to my eye in the night sky. I have learned that capturing acceptable images of deep space objects is not easy, and that you can endlessly come up with missing techniques, equipment, and location limitations that prevent an improved image.
