The Milky Way by Captain-Marmote
The Milky Way
The Milky Way. Shot with Canon 5Dmkiii, Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8

Home to our Sun, Earth and all the rest of the solar system. And home to an estimated 100–400 billion stars. That's a lot of stars. The diameter of the galaxy has been estimated at 150,000–180,000 light-years.

You can see the Milky Way unaided in the height of summer in good dark locations. It appears as it's namesake at first glance, a milky luminous streak traversing the sky. In good locations it's possible to see the dark dust lanes and other details.
Hello everyone, I'm currently in the process of writing a comprehensive tutorial for DSLR astrophotography. I'm covering humble beginnings using wide angle and static tripod work and up to tracking mounts and deep space objects, and everything in between. I'm of course trying to be as comprehensive and concise as possible in discussing theory, techniques and practicalities, trying not to be unduly technical. 

But I'm curious to know what questions from beginners or those interested in the subject might initially ask so that I make sure that I might do a better job at things that I might overlook. Or indeed any advanced questions that any of you may have. 

All questions are welcome :)
