Astrophotography is definitely not my strong suit. I took a number of photos last year and only one of them really turned out the way I wanted it to. Attaining a crisp image is challenging because keeping the exposure too long will result in trails (because the Earth is turning, after all); too little exposure and you won’t even be able to see anything. Finding the right balance is the key to capturing a great image. This is my best attempt so far – I’m hoping that I will do better in the future!
