Merry Christmas to you too Steve, and thanks for the help and advice you gave me when I first joined the A&C forum.

Thanks very much everyone, glad you enjoyed.

Chris, this is an image I posted previously but I should have included the info. A less cropped version and all the specifics can be found here. The star spikes were produced by criss-crossing fishing leader in front of the scope objectives(a phase I went through):

Cheers for the detail...missed it first time around.Lots of detail for an un-modded DSLR, do you have plans to go for a dedicated CCD at some point?

No problem. I don't have plans to go to a dedicated CCD at this time, but it would be nice. I have to balance my spending between astro and birding. I just upgraded my birding gear so the budget is at zero for astro gear now. I do have a mono CCD camera, an ATIK 16ic that I have so far only used for guiding.
