I did a lot of astrophotography in the mid-1980s through the early 1990s, but took a break from this hobby for more than 20 years, other than taking a few eclipse photos. All of my early astrophotos were taken using film based cameras through a Celestron-8 telescope, with a camera piggy-backed on top of the telescope, or with only a tripod. When I restarted this hobby in 2020, I no longer had a telescope, so I used only a hand-held or tripod mounted digital camera. Later in 2020, I purchased a Star Adventurer tracker for longer exposures.
