Dangers of Astronomy

You would think that Astronomy would be a fairly safe hobby other than tripping over stuff in the dark, dropping expensive eyepieces, being frightened by sounds in the darkness, screwing up your back lifting a 12" LX200 onto a tripod...
This photo shows another potential danger of this hobby, depending on your focal length and aperture. (click for full size)(Credit to forum on CloudyNights for the photo - and Astromick blog where I saw this!)
