    Greetings to all,
    Sad to say I have only now discovered your wonderful website and organization. I am an avid night sky enthusiast specializing mostly in wide angle photography that includes foreground landscapes framing the eternal night sky and all its many wonders. I especially enjoy creating high definition panoramas. After browsing your website, I was unable to find a way to post images here. Could you be so kind as to tell me a bit about how this might be done and what your policies might be.
