Looking for feedback on home page design

I’m redesigning a website I normally use for practice as their current design is questionable. I’m posting my first design (I have one more design that I’m trying out, it’s taking a little time) just to see if the design is worth following.

The summary of the website is that you can use the large telescope you see in the image to request pictures of objects in the night sky and you can edit them and upload them to a gallery.

Anyways, thoughts?

It is Ok
Add some more creativity in the banner image a Man Standing with Telescope watching Whole galaxy - Just a Suggestion.
