Thanks for all the kind words everyone! I'm pretty happy with it at this point. I may, if we have enough clear nights this winter add more time but we'll see. I just started a deep widefield image of the constellation Orion highlighting Barnards Loop which should be finished tonight.

Dave,

That's correct, it's 66 5 minute shots. I was actually asleep for all of these. I am able to control my whole setup from a laptop in my living room. I get everything setup and than just let the software do it's thing.

As far as a quality 80MM scope goes there are Soo many choices it's amazing. My personal picks would be the ED80 from Orion, the TMB80SS or for the ultimate in 80mm of aperture if you can find one, a TMB/LOMO 80/480.

Hi
This is another one of your fantastic shots and it is truly awesome. Is there a specific eyepiece you use ( 12mm, 30mm etc ) or do you just use a flattener. I'm just getting into astrophotography so any help would be appreciated.
