I love astrophotography. I love the chance to stand under the beautiful night sky, just staring into space. And what situation doesn't benefit from having a camera nearby, as well as having different equipment to work with? none. none at all. The different equipment I am referencing is a remote shutter trigger. The only time I use my remote shutter trigger is when I shoot astrophotography. Any other time that I need to trigger the shutter without causing much camera shake, I just use my 2 second on camera feature. That feature is quite helpful. But with astrophotography, the shots tend to take at least a minute, in which case I must use the remote otherwise I can only get up to 30 seconds. The remote allows for shutter speeds of as long as I am willing to sit under a starry sky. That could mean hours.

A good constellation. Definitely not my favorite, but a good one none the less. Orion takes the cake.
