I have always had a fascination with the night sky pondering it vastness and amazed at what was out there. It wasn't till about a year ago I started exploring the hobby of astrophotography instead of just observation.
So far most of my imaging has been done at Carlyle Lake in IL. with hopes of some imaging in some much darker skies in the future.
I have really enjoyed the Orion 10" Newtonian Astrograph and the Atlas EQ-G mount has done well even carrying the heavy load of the 10" Scope.
