    Oh WOW! These are absolutely amazing!

    I love the Saturn, Moon, and Orion Nebula ones - and also the galaxies - amazing to think more planets & life could be out there!

    I'm not a really Sci-Fi person, but am completely fascinated by space. The concept that something is infinate boggles my mind - what's outside of space!? Too deep for a Monday afternoon?

    Keep posting, I love them! I want a telescope now!

    Those pics are fantastic.

    My dad is really into astronomy and would always take me outside to look at something or other. I never could see what he was trying to show me though :( If I had been able to see stuff like your pics, I would have been definately interested!

    I'm SO amazed by this, i've literally spent about 20 mins just gazing at the photo's. its so cool.

    How do you look for planets?:shocked025:
