Hello everyone.

 

This is my first image EVER in Astrophotography.  I jumped in with both feet and stars in my eyes.  (​man I need to find cheaper hobbies)

 

I got hooked when I saw my second eclipse in October.  I took pictures of it and was like WoW.  

 

The image for me is awesome hope you like it.  

 

Ring Of Fire Midland TX
 
So I got hooked with this image.
 
So I wanted to take more!  Started researching what would be need to see the stars....weeks went by...
 
And finally after ordering the equipment I thought I needed...finding out that wasn't all I needed, ordered more.  Wait now the software to edit the images...now the plugins...
 
My first image!
 
Andromeda Galaxy (M31)

That is a really good first image; and Andromeda can be tougher than most beginners think.

 

Welcome and great job!
