Iris Nebula (NGC7023) at US Store
I discovered astronomy as a hobby in October 2011. After attending a star party and realizing I had found a new love (obsession, according to my wife), I got my CGEM in March 2012 and my 8" Astrograph in May 2012. Since then, the sky has literally been the limit. I really love the relatively wide angle that the Astrograph (at a focal length of 800mm) provides.

Notes: Doing astrophotography from the pitch-black skies at Golden State Star Party in extreme northeastern California was a treat. With no light pollution to get into the way, the Iris Nebula (NGC7023) stands out beautifully, as does the immense amount of dark dust in the space around it.
