Via Digg I found a lovely website called Light Stalking, with tips and fantastic photos for amateur photographers. The site is featuring wide-angle (that is, not through a telescope) pictures of the sky taken by amateurs, and they're lovely. The pix were culled from Flickr (though not freely licensed, so I cannot post any here), but it's easier to get them all from one place. Take a look! Maybe they'll inspire you to try to get some of your own.
