    What's the point in having all your fun toys if they're all locked inside the house and you're out in the doghouse[]

    Maybe he could hang onto the 5DII. I wonder if it would make a decent pillow? [:P]

    Hey Jon I had not replied here yet, because at the time I saw this topic I didn't have time to read it all(and I had no clue what I was looking at) so I saved it for later....a lot later...[:P]


    I really like the photos, I'm still not sure what I'm seeing, but it looks cool!


    Thanks for the explanation of the auto-glider and the setup you used. That's must be pretty much fun to do.

    Thanks, Jan. It's a picture of two nebulae in (or near) Sagittarius. The picture takes up a little over 2 degrees of sky in the long direction. Both nebulae are visible with the naked eye if you can get away from light pollution.


    It is a lot of fun, no doubt. Takes a lot of time, though.
