Astronomy and Astrophotography for the Beginner and Try-Hard Amateur!

We were blessed with pretty decent skies for the Perseids, despite weather reports threatening clouds. Visually, the meteor shower was quite good! Saw lots of red and green fireballs during two nights of observing, and lots of short, dimmer objects as well. Above is a shot of one fireball piercing the Milky Way over the Texas sky.
