Astro photography: a tough gig in our part of the world. You need a clear sky with minimal clouds, which doesn't happen too often; and a crisp, cool night so the atmosphere is clear. It is usually best to photograph in the early hours before dawn, and you need to get far away from the city or town, as the orange glow from the city lights can still be seen by camera in a long exposure.
Gear required includes: a wide angle lens with a fast aperture;  a camera that can go to high iso, e.g. 3200 without too much noise; and a steady tripod.
The reward  is images not seen every day!
