Yes, astrophotography is a real thing.  According to Wikipedia the first picture of the moon was taken in 1840.  I’ve been pretty fascinated with it recently myself so I thought I try my hand at it while we were in Hawaii.  This represents what I think is the best of the pictures I took there.  I got shots with the moon and shots of the Milky Way.  These are all single exposures meaning that I didn’t combine several pictures to get each part of the picture exposed properly.  I also did very little post processing and most of the post processing I did do was in Lightroom.  The longer I use Lightroom the more I appreciate what a great program it is.  These picture were all taken at ISO 1600, f 3.5 and about 20-25 seconds for each exposure.
