I have some fairly inexpensive starter equipment for amateur astronomy.  I have a Celestron NexStar 130 SLT telescope and a cheap Celestron astrophotography camera.  It's basically a very cheap webcam that happens to fit in the focuser.  I have acquired glass blanks to start grinding a much bigger objective mirror and try to build a better rig but like most of my hobbies, it's an "eventually" sort of thing.
