Recently took my 5D3 to the Queensland Astrofest and took some widefield astro photos with it (either using an Astrotrac or on a fixed tripod) ...

Very nice. I really like your Crux shot. Would you share some details ?
Well done for getting the Zodiacal Light shot.

I went to the Astrofest out there last year when I was still back in Aus. We didn't make too many friends when we drove in with high beams on :oops:

It was pretty cool to see all the pros out there with their gear, I learnt A LOT through those guys.
