Hi brian, Im currently doing the Astronomy course with you and love astrophotography myself. Your pictures are not only amazing but inspiring. Unfortunately as a single mum I cant afford the equipment needed so Ill settle for checking your photo's out. Thankyou
Never found one like this before
Quite a body of work you are amassing here. Well done!
Many thanks for documenting your collimation / alignment difficulties. That must have been a traumatic & frustrating year.
Regards, Wayne Kiely
Dr. Peterson, I enjoyed your display at the library last year and these pictures are just breath taking and soul nurturing. It is wonderful how well science can reveal God's glory and majesty to us so vividly. Thank you for these revelations. Have a Blessed and Hope Filled New Year!
Wow! These are amazing photos! Thanks for sharing them!
Hi Brian, I am just getting into astronomy and decided to check out the Midlands Astronomy page as I live in the area. While I am just a beginner, I can't help but admire how great your work is. Your photos really demonstrate the beauty of the universe. Clear Skies!
Brian.. wow and fabulous come to mind. Your efforts are above and beyond (grin) and what you leave behind in collections will likely be appreciated for as long as the universe remains a mystery, or our planet disappears, which ever comes first.
Brian... This is fantastic. Seeing these images, let alone taking the pictures, must be a pure joy and delight. They are truly wonderful. See the movie LOCAL HERO. John Trump

the universe. thanks to share them with us.

That's the finest Orion Nebula Photo I've ever seen(Williams Optics page). I have over thirty years professional photographic experience, but just starting to master the final frontier of Photography-Astroimaging. Local club may be viewing through Mnt. Wilson 60" Scope in a few weeks-I can't wait! Your photocredit states SC, where is ?Bluenth, I grew up in Charleston, on James Island-I have Stories! Dave Smith
Brian, admire your work, gives me something to work towards. Thanks and Clear Skies
Magnifiques galeries de photos bravo !!!
L. was talking about these at our women's lunch--they are terrific! Hope you are well. Safe travels. Peace, Mary F.
Your pictures are fantastic. Thank you for sharing them.
Have you considered exoplanet research?

Hi Brian, I have thoroughly enjoyed your gallery. I like you images taken with your 66mm scope. They framed nicely. Your descriptions are nice to see. Clear skies, John B. www.pbase.com/johnbunyan
Hi Brian! You've been busy! What a nice Messier album! Thanks for sharing!!
Great image of the Iris. Might suggest that you post a "negative" image of it. You will be amazed how much detail is there and might help spur you on to some additional processing (not that it is needed).
Very nice pictures
Brian, I've been viewing your 'Canon Digital Camera Images' gallery this afternoon and it's probably the most spectacular I've seen on this subject! Well done, and clear skies!
I am very new to the subject of Astrophotography - having shot my first ever shots with a DSLR on Aug. 6th this year.. I have seen many a-site on the net, and have seriously conculded that yours is the most compelling one I have viewed (and mind you, I know Fleming's site, Jerry's site and many others). I frequently use your site as a reference point for many tasks.
In terms of equipment - I am using a rather similar setup as you started with: A LXD75-SN10 with a Badder coma corrector fit on a Canon 450D. I don't have any permanent site for my scope, so each session involves travel of about 100 km to a semi-dark site, or, better, 275 km travel to a truly dark site in the Israeli Negev desert. Actually, these are the only options here - as you might know this country is one of the smallest in the world and very heavily populated, while traveling into the large area held by the Palestinian authority to observe the stars will end in a quick and sudden meeting with the Almighty :-)
Anyways, 2 weeks ago or so, I have decided to follow your tracks and put my images up on a gallery here. You can view them, if you like, on www.pbase.com/boren. I hope you like them. By the way, I would be grateful to your advice on how to "face lift" my gallery, as I don't seem to be able to get over the basic look and feel PBS provides.
Well, thanks again for your wonderful site!
All the best,
Harel Boren, Israel
Excellent work, Brian. Very impressive. I have not spent any time imaging these well-known targets myself, I prefer to use CCD to do astrometry in my limited viewing time; but I find work like this inspired and inspirational. Thanks!
These is great, your moon and stars are awsome. Can I use them in some of my pictures?
Most fantastic work.
I like to think that space is the final frontier of photography, everything is in place to make you fail., the dew, the focusing, the clouds.
Yet you prevail. Congrads and keep up the good work!
Hi Brian You really take nice pictures. I really like your horsehead/flame image. I also image with an LXD-55 10 " but still have the original mount.
I'm impressed by the galleries shown. I don't do astronomic photo (I don't have any equipment for that, but very interest in those fields). I guess it's difficult (patience long exposure time, in the cold night....)
Thanks to share your work

WOW, I`m impressed of your pics. I know how difficult is astrophoto!
I am a quite...no very amazed how you have managed to create such impressive images with high quality using that stubby little telescope and that "garden shag". You really know what you are doing. You are using EOS 350D, but I have understood that this EOS 20Da would be even better? Well, anyway impressive job you have done. Thank you for showing these mind broading pictures.
Really impressive stuff!
