Hi All. Came across this forum by accident but very pleased to find all these fantastic shots. Put my attempts to shame - must try harder!

Here are a couple of quick shots I took tonight - too cold out to do very much which is a shme because the Moon tonight is beautiful.

What kind of shots do you want to take? Wide angle ones (of the Milky Way, etc), or close-in shots of the moon, planets, galaxies and nebulae? If wide angle, I'd recommend the tokina 11-16 f/2.8; awesome Milky Way lens. If you're looking at small stuff, then you need a good telephoto, and probably a tracking mount. I have gotten great pix of a couple of galaxies with the 400mm f/5.6L.

here is a couple of my favorit. nothing great since i took it from what i could call my backyard, but very inside the city so lots of light polution. i use canon EOS1100D. click to enlarge

this one i used an old helios lens from my father's old zenit (with adapter). 50mm, which gives me about 80mm in my canon, 13s exposure, ISO400, apeerture maximum, since i cant choose, for its full manual.

this one although i recogn the focus aint good, i post to see if you guys agree that over the wall, there is the dim lights of milky way, very small and hard to see. i know i point in the correct direction, but could never see it. am i too optimistic? hehe this is the only shot i have i could see anything at all (i dont have much time to go out to the country to run away from light polution)
f/3.5 20s ISO800 at 18mm with the kit lens

Wow, nice shot. I'm going to have to try that! How much of a crop was that?

No crop on that one, overlaid a moon shot to compare the size of it. It's the Orion Nebula.
I just left it at 2.8 and started bumping up the ISO, it began to show up around 1600 at 2sec.
