Absolute beginner, know NOTHING about astrophotography!

Perhap because light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I haven't used it for astro stuff yet, but done a lot of close work with flowers etc. it's great, and I'm hoping it's 12m pixels will be great for astro. Shane McDonald has one as well. I think, but I can stand corrected if need be, that he has done some basic astro with it with his 70mm scope.
