This blog describes my personal journey into astro photography and some of the equipment I have owned over the years, the early results to the pictures I take now. For anyone interested who is wondering how to get started, this blog will be useful to you.
Before getting started, my first recommendation would be to talk to someone who is already experienced. If you know someone, approach them. If not, find a local group and join in with some of their events. Many of them run outreach events and are very generous with their time to those who want to understand how get started.
