Astronomy attracts the most dorkiest hobbyists of all time. And there is a special breed of astronomer dork that makes astronomical photography their mission in life, to get the clearest possible image of celestial objects. First, there is the photographer who only takes daytime shots. Next, there is the photographer who takes nighttime images in seemingly impossible places, like on beaches and campgrounds. And finally, there are those who get up at 3 AM to go outside and attempt to capture a once in a lifetime shot.
