Dear all, I made a thread earlier about how Comet Neowise has rekindled my interests in astronomy. Well, I've been learning as much as I can on my free time that, I don't think I should continue that thread. Since then, I've been acquiring parts to start this new exciting adventure. At the same time, I want to re-use and re-purpose existing equipment I already have to reduce cost. I hope like most of you, this will become a lifelong hobby.
Yes, I spreadsheet all of my hobbies. It gives me a perspective on how far I've come, or where the failure happened. I've been tracking my spending and parts list. I'd like some critiques and please let me know if I am missing anything for a beginner. (Yes, I will be adding an editing software as well)
For the foreseeable future, I will use be using camera lenses only. Because I think the lenses with longer focal length and higher magnification would just lead to frustration. Especially when the bulk of my focus now is gear setup, figuring out filters and exposures, and post-processing.
I appreciate your feedback, thank you!
