Thanks for the comments everyone,
SgWRX, I am very certain the only way I will ever own the astronomy gear I would like to have would be to win the lottery lol, but if I ever do become independently wealthy I think one of my first purchases would be a <0.2 anstrom H-alpha filtered Astro-Physics APO refractor *stops to wipe drool from keyboard*
I don't have any shots of the ring nebula but how about a moddest attempt at M51
and a shot of Orion. I normally image under moderetly light polluted skys so I tend to focus more on objects in our solar system or the larger and brighter DSOs.
I just aquired a televue 5X powermate that I havn't really had a chance to use yet and I will probably try my hand at some more DSOs this winter so I will post some more when I get some new shots.
