As CCD sensitivity increased, more and more opportunity opens to include backyard astronomers in major photographs and discoveries. I have had an affliction for the night sky since I was a young, and today capturing the wonders in my backyard is a great way to spend a summer night.
Here is a flyer produced to promote backyard astrophotography nights that I host to introduce anyone interested to the subject. Flyer photographs of the Milky Way Galaxy and Observatory were captured using my mounted 5D Mark II.
