Astro Photography

Though I am into photography for practically my whole life, I am fairly new to astrophotography. There are quite a few things worth knowing when you enter the realm of stars and nebulae. For instance: where the hell is what in that immense deep and wide black sky?

Now I don't pretend to write a course on astro but describing the way I do it with the hardware and knowledge I have may help you to make a start too.
