Thanks, guys!!!

Shot with a Meade ETX-80AT-TC F/5 refractor using their LPI imager. About $400 worth of gear, not counting the Pentium 3 computer used to record. Money well spent for something that will change the way you see the world (and your place in it).

One of the neat things about my 60D, is that I can hook it up to the laptop, and control the live view on it! It's amazing the clarity you can get when focusing. My biggest issue now is the tripod.

Orly!? That's cool! Is that with canon software or third party?

Canon software! You can adjust the ISO, aperture, etc., all from the computer. It's neat.

Yeah, I know. Unfortunately, I have to drive about an hour or so west to get some place where there's no light pollution, and then I have to be worried about other hazards ninja.gif

I have to fix my car first before I go on any longer drives anyway. That milky way is not in the direction of the picture I posted anywho. It's to the south, and that was northwest.

Didn't get a chance to get out last night as it was cloudy all around. Anyone else have any luck?
