The astrophotgraphy pool at flickr is not to be missed, if you're into astrophotography.

I was hoping the site itself would be a bit more shiny and web2.0'y. But the images more than make up for it.

schlaager's link is borked, but well worth looking up.

It's a shame that their use policy actually prevents me from even looking at the photos:
Downloading, copying or using any image or video for any purpose is prohibited without written permission from the copyright owner.
(emphasis mine)

Beautiful photos, but they kinda sorta need to figure out how the internet works :)
