My first two years at Deep Sky Astrophotography. Still on the (steep) learning slope, but some of the things out there are just amazing.
All the images are taken from my light polluted, suburban, back garden with an astro-modified Canon 700d mostly at prime focus on my SW 200P originally mounted on an EQ5 but lately on an Alt Az EQ6.  For most of the wide field images a 200 mm Canon lens was used. The EQ5 did have added motor drives which were replaced with the Astroeq belt driven stepper motors in a quest for greater accuracy.

Wow ... just wow. Beautifil matey. Thank you for the advice. I have to have a think. Save up and wait and get going with less hassle and concentrate on the enjoyment. Or take the slower potential slog.
