It is truely amazing the clarity and beauty of some of the images I have seen astrophotographrs capture. I have a 8" SCT scope myself (Celestron
C8-not what is in my avatar,lol) and would like to get into astrophotography, but can't afford the extra equipment yet.
BTW, that guys mount/tripod cost more than the scope did, I believe. They often can, for a great mount! Plus the camera(perhaps its a SBIG camera)
can cost into the thousands, even 5k+.
If anyone seriously wants to get into amateur astronomy, send me a PM. I know where to go to hook you up with some great equipment at very reasonable
prices. I'm not selling, I just know where the amateur astronoymers hang out and sell their used equipment,lol.
