You can't post a picture like that without showing us your setup!

Also, it makes one feel insignificant in the vastness of it all, while simultaneously conveying a sense of freedom.

Setup wasn't anything fancy.

Canon T-6 (about a five year old consumer level DSLR).

Comet pic was taken with a 70-300 zoom lens at...maybe 100 mm.

Milkyway pic was taken with a fixed 50 mm lens.

Decent tripod.

Not star trackers or telescopes in the normal sense of the word.

Those are amazing pics. Imagine the journey that comet has been on and the story it would tell if it could.
