There are hundreds of tips here on CCD imaging, as well as product reviews and answers to common questions. You can also post your images and get critiqued, or submit your suggestions so that others can learn from your experiences.
And if you just enjoy looking at the images of celestial objects, please feel free join us!
This group is designed more like a classroom and most other Yahoo groups. We have multiple teachers and many students. We ask that posts be polite, on topic, and that members take responsibility for their posts. That means that the group comes first - post facts, not opinions, so that others can learn.
Note: we have special requirements for commercial postings. A message from or on behalf of a commercial product or company must meet the following requirements:
It must be brief;
It must not be promotion or hyperbolic in tone;
It must not contain marketing materials;
It must link to a web page with additional details.
