Astrophotography is the best way to get into astronomy for people who are not really interested in learning the science of how the night sky is made up. Astronomy is an amazing way to make sense of the universe and learn more about ourselves and the world around us.

Getting into Astrophotography can be a daunting task for beginners due to the complexity of the subject and all the gear you need to get started. But, it doesn’t have to be that way if you know what you are doing and how to approach it. If you are brand new to Astrophotography and looking to learn the skills and techniques needed to get into the hobby, you will need to spend more time learning about astronomy and the instruments needed than you initially anticipated.

A good place to start is with a book like The Backyard Astronomer’s Guide.
