Billions and billions and trillions of tons I expect!! Is that red ring near the top right Barnard's Loop?

These really are amazing shots, I think my favourite images are wide-fields that show all this detail that by looking up we simply can't see. What FL is that second image? 70mm?

Well the Sword is in there, so I guess it counts! :)

I do like the constellation shots you're getting with your 17-70. Must get me one of those f/2.8 "L" lenses, as the images I see on here are stunning.

I just wanted to let you guys know again how much I appreciate the comments. It's within the reach of everyone to produce an image like this. Time, patience and some good skies are the majority of the ingrediants. If I can help anybody with questions or tips PLEASE don't hesitate to drop me a PM.

It's so great to see this oriented differently than in the US. I had to look it over a couple of times just to kind of get my bearings. Thanks for posting!

That's a beautiful image, very peaceful and serene. Love the foreground and the glow in the distance. Great Job.

Still working on getting mine done... hopefully soon :D
