I look forward to using the hours I won at Astrofest.
But I still feel that I'm missing out by not actually getting my hands on the scope and doing it all from scratch.
What images I produce will be credited accordingly.
Not quite true.
You can acquire high quality data with limited equipment. It just depends what you want to do with that data. For differential photometry or astronomy you don't need a 24" scope just a consistent detector and good technique. For pretty pictures to perhaps enter in a competition maybe you do need the high end stuff as the debate seems to be based on the pretty pictures.
