    nice - we get a much better look fro the Southern Hemisphere don't we?
    I got a short stack last week. It's not as good as yours, but it's only 13 x 20 seconds at iso800 - the weather closed in after that and I got no more exposures.
    My meade is unguided and not on the wedge. so it was an alt/az shot
