I've been trying my hand at astrophotography for about two years now.

Back in January 2008 I put this image on the Gallery:

This weekend I had another go to see if I'm getting any better. I still have a fair way to go...

This image was a stack of 60 lights of 90 seconds each. (no dark or flats taken) I think the exp time was too long since the core of the nebula got a little cooked!

Any developmental feedback always welcome.

Very nice image Andrew! Also a huge step up from the 2008 image. I also like to compare my recent efforts with those when I started two years ago. I just hope I can maintain the progress!
