words of wisdom from an experienced astro-imager!

addictive???  well... 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?"

no, i don't believe we are addicts, i believe for the most part we are somewhat but not totally insane.
