Astrophotography can be overwhelming when you are just getting started. To help, we’ve listed some of our most helpful resources to help you on your astrophotography journey.
So if you’re just getting started in astrophotography, the best advice I can give is to be prepared that your first few images will probably be not what you expected, especially if you’re comparing them to what you see elsewhere here on the site.
But they will certainly improve over time, I have seen some amazing images from fellow astrophotographers who are relatively new. It just takes a little trial and error.
So take your time, go through these resources and most of all, practice, enjoy, and hopefully lots of clear skies are coming your way.
