Nice image there James! You know, it actually looks like you have used ISO1600 FILM instead of a digital camera! Reminds me of some shots I have of the Plough on 2 minute exposures on 1600 film - its the colour grain effect to the black background!

Excellent image James. I have also taken some images tonight (and last night, 2 clear nights in a row :shock: ) As I do not yet have a shutter release I am limited to using the self timer to fire the 30 second exposures. I have stacked a couple of images in registax but only see a small improvement in the results.

Anyway the results are on the Kerry Astronomy Club site

Follow the link in the home page to the Gallery.

James, would you like to post some images on our site??

I see you managed to get the ion tail last night, which was quite prominent. I was out last night and took 50 shots, all ruined by the high winds but through the blur I saw a tail.

James, would you like to post some images on our site??


Yes, I would like that. You can also link to any photos on my website. It's good for my hit count!

Keep an eye on james.butler.name/weblog/astrodiary/astrodiary.html and see what you would like then just ask and I'll send you a copy. I am working on some links of my own and can cross-link with your site too.
