Welcome: astrophotography blog description
Hello, and welcome to my astrophotography blog. For this first post, I just want to explain the goals and motivation for creating this.
One of the greatest parts of the astrophotography community is the willingness to help each other out. In my opinion, successful astrophotography involves quite a bit of problem solving. I've read many forum posts on CN and participated in many discussions on Facebook astrophotography groups that have immensely helped me. Sometimes the smallest of tips can save a night of imaging, salvage a project, or completely change the way you process images.
The goal of this blog is to provide you with solutions to problems that I've experienced in astrophotography, and to create a conversation. I will attempt to keep each entry concise. The main focus will likely be processing tips, but I'll also discuss equipment (for example, backspacing on my Edge HD 8 with the Celestron OAG). Hopefully these "hacks" will help some of you, and you all will help me by commenting and providing alternative solutions or better tips. As they say, "there's more than one way to skin a cat".
I will (attempt to) produce some supplemental videos, as I know that's often the best way to present ideas. I'll also write a description in this blog to include photos. I'm currently working on the first entry, and hope to have it out soon!
Having said that, if you have any suggestions for possible blog ideas, I'd love to hear it in the comments. Clear skies to everyone, and I look forward to adding to this ongoing project.
