Really beautiful images, Dave. The skies here are too light polluted to get anything like these. Well done.

Nice- the best bits of the Milky Way are rather near the horizon for us!

I think you get to see a different part of the Milky Way to us in the Southern hemisphere LJ certain times of the year when it is up.

If you have a digital SLR Mike, a short drive away from the city lights will make all the difference for some great shots.

      Zero budget astrophotography...
      I thought it may be interesting for people wanting a super lightweight and easy to set up form of astrophotography that costs next to nothing. I've taken these three shots with my mobile phone through a pair of cheap binoculars using an ordinary tripod (it belonged to my wife's grandfather). 

       
      The intergration time for each was only a few minutes. 
      Orion: 157 x 1 sec
      Andromeda 300 x 2 sec
      7 sisters 120 x 2sec
      I've made a VIDEO of the method and the surprising adventure I had taking them which you can watch here:
