There sure is a lot of stars in there Pat. We should hold a competition for who can count and get the closest amount to what I've counted :biggrin:

Entries close 2025 (that's how long it will take to count em all).

Great work, was this shot piggybacking?

Hey there boss,, yep was piggy-backed on the 12 in .:wink:

My rings for the st80 have a camera mount built into them:biggrin:

Beautiful shot HP.

Wouldn't it be amazing if one could walk outside and actually 'see' all that luminance. I'd never sleep.

Well mate ,from my backyard on a dark night , you can make out the Coal sack Nebula in the Southern Cross, naked eye easily:eek:

To all wishing for a star count ,, well,, i think i have one program that counts stars here somewhere .i will have a look Radar:frown:

What a cool little feature. I haven't used Deep Sky Stacker yet, but star counting is neat.
