  one of the funnier stories a text book contained when I was teaching English to insurance brokers years ago was of a court case in the States. Went something like this:

Counsel for the defense interrogating the state coroner:
   "How can you be sure the victim was dead?"
Coroner
   "Because his brain was in a glass jar on my desk"
Counsel
   "But technically, he may still have been alive?"
Coroner
   "Well I guess he may still be alive and practising law somewhere." 

did he have a mind file?
because if he did...

currently all i'm going to say on this subject is that i've had one or more for awhile
which may or may not explain a lot
it's the original meta

yep i like to use a brown glass and store at room temp
it's a lot easier than diddling with cryogenics, vacuums, lead shielding and it works for other important stuff

software? it looks like there are the usual suspects in photo processing, sfw would be right at home
i'll probably wait until the barriers to entry are in a handy app that willie nelson could use
you know who told me that wrangling light from that distance requires patience and special bum salve
so i'd probably have to go out into the everglades at night and lose the pants
i've already decided on what to name my first discovery
the kindred hobo nebula!
once this gets rolling i say let the NFTs flow!

that is amazing heck i'm blown away at the astrophotography on twitter
stunning images/captures from telescopes w/ cameras in backyards makes you want to buy a rig and point it toward the night sky...
A friend built an observatory with a honkin' big (can't remember the exact size) reflector scope in his yard. He's outside of town and we get some incredibly clear nights. Anyway, he was showing me the process for processing images and it was mind blowing. It involved software that analyses and grabs the best frames from a video and stacks them. Then it goes into software that takes out the noise then something to enhance the image. Or something like that. Pretty complex, but amazing automation mixed with hand processing. His images of various nebulae are really nice.
 

saw a bit where these guys into this stuff were helping each other build "roofless enclosures" in their backyards

like a simple shed with high walls and no roof/top or removeable roofs
i think they were shielding their rigs from excess light (trying to control for light gathering/pollution)
obviously if you spend a few grand on a setup you'd like to protect it too
you know, bad guys in the middle of the night making off with your equipment

and the tech? hardware prices dropping and the software is mind bottling
