I'm particularly impressed by the low-cost astrophotography group who show that hobbyists can capture amazing images without a lot of very spendy, specialized equipment.

I'd like to click the About link at the bottom of the page, but like Tantalus, it gets moved further away every time I scroll down.

This is the coolest thing ever!
Many of the images have a sky plot associated with them. I can us that to try to see the same piece of the sky with my telescope.
Thank you for posting this, peeedro.
