    Well done Carole, great work.

    I spotted your photo in Astronomy Now a couple of days ago. By co-incidence we'd been chatting about DSLRs a couple of days ago elsewhere on this forum.

    Very impressed by the results you're getting from your ED120. I do wonder if that is a direction I should go in.

    Thanks for all your kind replies.

    I have certainly realised that imaging at home where it is light polluted is limited, and some things can only be done successfully from a dark site.
