Where are you guys ?

Thank you for your wisdom!

Hi guys. I’ve been on a slow journey from visual observing to just now getting the equipment I need to take a stab at deep sky photography. The experience Trevor and Steve share in this podcast has been immensely helpful in equipping myself for success. This and the tips in Astrobackyard have been invaluable. Steve may not know it, but he’s provided me with the last three pieces of equipment I needed to start this journey. I highly recommend giving this podcast a listen if you have any interest in photographing the night sky. Thanks again guys!
