Obviously not as interesting but

Obviously not as interesting a topic as one where people post images but, does anyone actually just "LOOK" through their scope these days, and I do not mean in between imaging

Visual observation is very interesting whether it is done between imaging, or on in a separate session. I tend to use imaging mostly to illustrate my log. It is only in more recent times that I have done imaging for the sake of it. I regularly put aside a session just for visual observing. It is possible to get through a lot more objects in an evening that way.

I don't look through my telescope that often but I use my binoculars quite a lot:

I sometimes look through my binoculars while taking photos.

I took the plunge into astrophotography mostly because I was relying on others to provide photos for my books.
