My first post on this forum.

I just noticed that there is an astrophotography section in this forum. I shot this one a few nights ago. It's 40min worth of exposure shot with my canon XS.

Enjoy.

Very nice - good tracking and focus, good red response from an unmodified DSLR.

What were the exposure parameters, i.e., number and length of subs, ISO? What optics were used?
