You probably found this site because you’re passionate about getting started with astrophotography. Then you are now one of thousands of deep sky astrophotography enthusiasts who have embarked on the journey of a lifetime to capture the night sky.

If you’re working on improving your astrophotography techniques and skills, then this hobby requires you to know what equipment you’ll need and how to operate it under clear night skies. The goal of the Astronomical Guide website is to share astronomy knowledge and astrophotography skills. We love delving into anything about astronomy.

The posts on this site are meant to document our quest for great photos of the night sky and stars, while spending as little money as possible and helping others to do the same. Everything on this site is based on our own trial-and-error learning, interviews with other successful astrophotographers, or old-fashioned research based on books, videos, and other online sources.
