Wide-field imaging was where I started to show friends the pictures that I had taken. Before that, most of my pictures were just a
streaky blur, really!. Eventhough these pictures are not of the highest quality, at least I could show what I shot and share that this is how you learn. You can get by with a just a camera and a
tri-pod to start. Then, mount your camera on a motordriven polar aligned tripod or mount the camera piggyback on a motordriven polar aligned telescope. Then work your way up to guided imaging through a
telescope. After I jumped into CCD imaging, moved away from wide-field imaging while out under the stars. With a quality short focal length optical tube and digital color CMOS imaging camera, you
and I can obtain beautiful wide-field deepsky pictures. I will plan on getting back into it in the near future.
Here are some images that I did many moons ago.
