One thing about astrophotography: there's always more to learn. There's always room for improvement.

Introduction
This is the g+ page for Urban Astronomer, a South African based website which tries to help those of us interested in the stars to learn a little about astronomy. How to observe?  What are those things you showed me in your telescope?  What are professional astronomers learning about the universe while I enjoy the view?
