After recently acquiring a telescope and diving into the complex art of astrophotography, I've very quickly found myself drowning in the technical details of data acquisition and image processing. I'm approaching the limit of relevant ideas and issues I can sensibly keep track of in my head so starting a log of some type seems like a logical step. I've elected to create a public blog as I figure other new users may find some of what I have to share useful (as I have with other blogs). Being a complex but also somewhat niche hobby I've found it quite common to encounter smaller issues that it's difficult to find detailed information on, despite the wealth of astro resources out there. Hopefully, if anything, I'll be able to plug some of those gaps and maybe share some pretty images along the way!
