The next three are selections that I cropped from the full resolution copy of the one above.
It's such a large image that opening it on the Hubble site is so slow I was half expecting a naked picture to materialize--circa 1997

Do you have a telescope?
I do. I've been slowly building up an Astrograph set up. I need a bahtinov mask next I guess to fine focus through my camera's display. But until a few days ago, I totally spaced that my newer camera can live display to a laptop through wifi, so I'll see if a 13" retina will let me focus sharp enough not to have to put a mask in between the telescope and the sky.
It's been cloudy though.

Nope. I used to have one a long time ago. The good ones are pretty expensive.
Sounds like a promosing start for your astrograph set.

I have a pair of these Vixen wide field binoculars too. They are very awesome, and anyone who loves space should get them. Their whole appeal isn't magnification though, rather it's their light gathering ability. Like being able to hyper-dilate your pupils, or borrow owl eyes. You see so many more stars, and very faint objects that you can usually only see in long exposure photos, or photo stacks--giant objects that take up huge portions of our skies that we just can't see because our pupils don't open wide enough to collect enough of their low light to make them visible.
My only complaint about them was always that you had to hold them, but now I see people have made mods and tripod attachments for them to solve this. Cool. I must have been one of the first people to get them, because even after paying for them I had to wait like almost a year for Vixen to finally start shipping them out.

As cool as they are, I still think I've probably spent just as much time laughing at the safety sheet that came with them, as I have looking through the binoculars themselves. I love both of them so much--well worth the money and wait for them to arrive.

how much should a pair of those set me back? like I can just search online but as somebody in the know, how much should I expect to pay without paying too much? Would I be able to get equipment like this for $100?

Not a $100 I don't think. I think there is a company from Russia that makes a less expensive pair of super wide binoculars that are configured like these, but I've never actually seen them for sale anywhere. BH has these Vixens on sale right now for $250USD. I paid $400CAD, so the non sale price $300USD.

As far as astro stuff goes, that's pretty good. I have single telescopic eyepieces that I paid more for. These binoculars are so heavy and tankish in the hand, you can tell they didn't skimp in making them.
The astro industry has some of the last really cool glass manufacturing left around. All the old photo glass companies are making things too quickly to be good in enough to stick out. Now, all the nicest glass around is coming from smaller American companies Televue, Stellarvue, or Japanese companies like Vixen or Borg. Although, I do still like Zeiss--even their newer stuff. This is a photo with my 32mm Zeiss Touit (twit) lens autofocusing a 15 second exposure, using my knee pinned against a log as a tripod.

I was gonna ask shoelessjoejackson too--you guys both popped up out of nowhere, cracking jokes at around the same time.

I wouldn't bother watching this second one if you're a drone pilot though. (may cause discomfort)
