Just a reminder that sometimes we take for granted that if we don't have a scope we don't have a way to do a little photography. This image was taken in Afghanistan last year with (of all things) an iphone:

That is really amazing! Apparently, light pollution was not a problem.

By the way, thanks for serving!

I wish I could say the same thing for my back yard! Unfortunately, other people think they need those street light things and built in a way that puts half the light in the air.

That is amazing, I've been doing constellation shots with a compact digital camera for years but now have a DSLR.

Thanks Phil. I Recently bought an ETX-60 for my youngest daughter and am modifying a webcam to work with it now so I can see if her (for the moment) interest with astrophotography comes to anything. If I can get some decent shots I will post them.
