I used to do Film Astrophotography, Including guiding with an Off Axis Guider for up to an Hour a shot..Now these guys have to have an Autogiuder with their CCD's taking 1 min subs and shots????
where did the hobby part go?
I used to do it because it was relaxing .. Soon they wont even have to go outside.
Sit in the house watching re-runs of Golden Girls while the computer does everything.. Again I just don't get it??

As we have come into the digital age things are just much harder if you have to do something.
As George Jetson would say: "Oh my aching fingers"
