Hello all, who is all:
I'm an avid landscape photographer.  About 4 years ago I was bitten by the Astro bug when a friend invited me out shoot the stars one evening.  It was a thrill to see what your normally cant see with your eyes alone.  I have since then been spending my time learning what I can and of course purchasing new equipment to take well tracked images of the milky way.  A few months ago I decided it was time to up my game to the next level.  I did some research and asked a butt load of questions if a butt load of forums to help me figure out what would suit my needs and wants.  I decided on the Sky-Watcher Esprit 100ED for my scope, the Sky-Watcher EQ6-R Pro for the mount and an ASI294MC for the camera.   You want to talk about a learning curved going from a DSLR with great lens's and small tracker to a full telescope setup.  There is a hell of a lot to learn in this hobby.  Everything from relearning how to photograph, to processing and everything in between.  So please excuse me, I will be asking a butt load of questions here also.
