Finally! I got a clear night with no moon, no clouds, and no work the next day!! I stayed out until around 2am and shot a range of things I have been meaning to experiment with.

First cab off the rank - the milky way, around 4 minutes using an EQ6 pro mount under my camera to track the stars for the duration.

I've been so absorbed with my planetarium that I guess I missed a lot of these posts. I wouldn't have thought that such a stunning image could be captured in just four minutes. Barry, all of you images are mindblowing and as good as anything I have seen. I need to spend more time at your site and learn how to do this.

How dark is your site? I know you're in a neighborhood but all of your stuff looks like it was taken from the middle of the Atlantic! Any filtering to get rid of the light pollution or to enhance the images???

Canberra's light pollution is not as bad as Sydney's. I live in a suburb 20 minutes from the heart of the city. My sky glow in the direction of the city centre is awful, but straight up is lovely. I do most of my imaging high in the sky if I can.

That particular shot was taken half an hour out of the suburbs in the mountains to our west. It's really dark out there as long as you don't face the city.

I don't use any filters, but I have been accused of clipping the histogram too much. The way I see it, it's my photo, I can clip it as much as I like. (IMG:http://www.observatorycentral.com/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
