I'm an enthusiast amateur photographer from the Netherlands. My main two interests in photography are urban exploration and portrait/model shoots. I used to do same basic astrophotography in the past.

@mattdm I realize now that is very vague indeed, I'll edit the answer. I won't post the exact content from the pdf though since I'd need permission from the author for that.

comment How does one focus for landscape photos in very dark conditions?
Be aware of temperature changes, these can affect the focus point.

Your first suggestion would work as long as the temperature doesn't change too much between focussing time and shooting time. I like the suggestion about the laser pointer!

comment Free program for editing pictures
+1 Great suggestion, I use these as well. GIMP takes some getting used to though. But is has superb capabilities (similar to Photoshop).

comment Cameras using mirrors instead of lenses?
Positive points for mirror lenses are reduced weight and length. This Samyang 800mm lens is only 114mm long: samyang.pl/product,144,category,5,samyang_800mm_mc_if_f8_mirror
