    I havn't been shooting much lately and when i do it is astrophotography. Here are a few of my recent shots.

    Mars: 300 frames stacked in registax taken with a ToUcam II a 2X barlow and a 10" reflecting telescope.

    And something a little closer to home taken with my 300D at prime focus with my 10" scope.

    One more for good measure, the famous crater copernicus taken with my ToUcam.

    I just bought a small Hydrogen alpha narrow band telescope used for observing the chromosphere of the sun, once I get the necessary attachment for my camera I will post some shots with it. Thanks for looking.

    I'm sure they're all impressive in their own right, but I'm not an astrologist :confused:

    But boy, that shot of the moon is simply amazing!!!! I can't believe the detail. Thanks for sharing :thumbup:

    love these shots, keep sharing! I haven't been into astronomy in a while, so I'm not sure if saturn and jupiter are up right now, but would love to see some shots of those as well...

    Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed them.

    Garbz, yes I can see the crab and any other well known object. There is an astrophotography theme kicking around in the thems section which has a shot I tok of the orion nebula.

    JTHphoto, Saturn is currently visiable in the early morning, I plan on imaging it within the next month.

    Abstract, You can currently get the same scope as mine from Orion for around $1300 american, but that dosen't come with any eyepieces or filters. I have spent about $7000 on this hobby already but you could probably get started for around $500.

    Here is a full resolution version of the moon shot to give you a better idea.
