ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY

New hobby since the year 2020 is becoming ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY!

I recently built my own Astroshed and am starting to learn about gathering photons from deep sky objects – galaxies and nebulae…

Not as easy as it seemed, but slowly my knowledge and experience grow – and with that – please enjoy my astro photos.
