Every single one of amateur astrophotographer is so fascinated by the vast expanse of the night sky. Even with huge distances, it cannot stop us from exploring the star and would not douse our yearning. Imagine, after one or several nights of setting up gear, data acquisition and post-processing, then, a stunning picture beyond words that reveals distant celestial objects millions of light years far away from us is captured by you! Terribly attractive, got to say.

As the AM5 launched early this year, ten months have passed up to now. Therefore, we would like to pay a satisfactory answer for the majority of customers and friends of the community before the Black Friday came. We gather some fantastic works captured by worldwide AM5 users from the social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Astrobin. Action speaks louder than words, so let’s see what they have achieved with AM5!
