Thank you Kyle, I appreciate that. That's a great capture Yurik, I've only tried an ISS moon transit once and it didn't come out nearly so well. I shot Orion last night with my new ST-2000XCM camera - I have to take at least one picture of the Orion nebula with each deep space camera I get.

I couldn't pass up the opportunity of another clear night so I took a crack at the horsehead this morning, despite a bright nearby moon. Used an Astronomik UHC filter to try to get around that as much as possible.



New version with redone processing using a denoising plugin for GIMP recommended to me by someone in one of my other astronomy groups:

I rather like the improvement. Here's the link to the plugin if anyone else wants to try it:

My shot of Siding Spring approaching Mars made front page of ESA's website today:

Here's a time lapse of the exposures that went into the stacked image (including a few I rejected from the stack such as the last one with a plane trail):

That's like an astrophotographer's dream recognition there. Well done and well deserved!

I ordered a job from the MicroTelescope Array, and here's the result. Raw image of M42.
