words of wisdom from an experienced astro-imager!
no, not at all. i think astro-imagers are missing something in life that makes
them desperately need a challenge. a challenge which requires, research,
testing, reading, learning new software, testing various techniques, post and
pre processing skills and equipment. a telescope, camera of some
type, wires, cpu, software, ep's, and a power source. and along
the way we develop the skills our parents tried so hard to teach us, like patience
and another good one , character. it takes great character to sit
out in the freezing cold wondering if your shivering may in someway affect the
photo you are so focused on taking. to top it all off after hours
of time and post processing you stare in awe at your screen and yell "honey,
come see this, you won't believe it!" and honey walks in and stares
intently at your screen while you sit in eager anticipation of praise and job
well done and honey asks, "what is it?"
