Very nice drummer. You should be well pleased with these. Using the Canon I assume - is it modified?

Those are great, I'd be well pleased with those given the relatively short exposure times....only 15min on m42..wow!

One thing I did this time was to shoot all my images at the same ISO and exposure and this allowed me to use the same darks for multiple targets. So after it started to get light I just set the darks going, covered the rig and went to bed. Getting as many darks as possible will help take out some more noise and smooth the images.

Well done on these.

Mike

Great stuff Neil, I was looking forward to seeing these. I like the little galaxy, NGC6207 I think, in the M13 image :icon_eek:
