I could sink a lot of money into astrophotography. The tripod I want costs as much as a slightly used volkswagen. And there’s a telescope I’ve seen that sells more for a house. Seriously. They make some neat stuff nowadays. If I win the lottery, that’s where all my money is going.
I snapped these lunar pics while there was still daylight left. The focus wasn’t as crisp as I’d like but for a little amateur telescope I’ll take it. We don’t get many clear nights out here but when we do, I’ll get a few nice pics out of it.
