    That is a killer shot of the horse head, you must have had very dark skies, you got some of the nebulosity around the star in lower left as well, nice stuff.

    Why do you shot in BW? Something to do with reciprocity failure?

    It's nice to see more people into astophotography around here, keep them coming.

    That shot of the Horsehead Nebula would be awsome in colour! :thumbup:


    Can't wait for Orion to get back into the night sky again! Such a great subject and relatively easy to photograph too!:D

    Eh?

    Ah, all you astronomers!
    I envy you for
    a) your knowledge,
    b) your equipment,
    c) your photographic results.

    It's all either on the internet, in books or on computer programs! Nobody is born with knowledge!:lol:


    Orion will be up in a couple of months nearly overhead looking to the sout at around 10pm or so. You can see the Orion Nebula with an ordinary pair of binoculars so photographing it is easy compared to other astro stuff!:thumbup:

    When I'll have finished my "geograph-project" for www.geograph.co.uk I might delve into astronomy. It has fascinated me forever but I could never make myself acquire any deeper knowledge. You might be in the process of inspiring me here ;).
