I laid in bed for 2 hours afterwards just shivering -its tru what they say aboutwrapping an icecube in a blanket
Those are truly brilliant, it's amazing what is out there
OMG, were those just shot through the camera's eye or through a telescope? They are fabulous.

Those were taken with a Skywtcher ed80 pro refractor telescope - it is apochormatic which means it has extra lenses to bend all the light wavelengths together which is important for decent pics - so although its only a small scope you can get decent pictures. It is mounted on a HEQ5 sysnscan pro equatorial mount - the camera is a simple DSLR canon eos 350/rebelxt with the lens off and a conncting t-ring to put it where the eyepiece would go. No laptop was used - but my next project will need one
The nebula picture is 25 x 90second shots and the horsehead is 20 - next time it is clear i will go and take a load more to add to bothstacks to smooth out the images.
waws that too much information?
