    Mum - of course I don't mind I would be flattered

    Keith - not quite millions of pounds but if you add it all up it is a bit like any hobby

    These two actually sit right next to each other the pelican on the right some of the stars are on both pics but trying to do a mosaic would be

    Nut the individual subframes look pretty much like the finished product and I shoot in L (curve) not in RAW each photo is just a little noisier than the combined effect of them all - then this 'sandwich' of 20 photos has bias frames subtracted as well as dark frames of equal length with the lens cap on this removes all the hot pixels and noise from the sensor getting hot with such long exposures. In order to 'see' these you would need a dark site and quite a big scope.

    you can Lozzy as you are so close we really ought to get around to that meet up to have a look sometime

    That would be great, trouble is picking the right evening so we have a clear sky.

    Hmmm just looked at these on my iPhone and they look dark and horrible. That is the problem with digital photography so much of it depends on monitor settings

    Spectacular Chris!

    Now take some of these magnificent shots of yours, import them into iMovie, add some transitions, some titles, a lovely sound track (preferably not Also sprach Zarathustra), post them on YouTube and show us whatcha got!
