HorusBennu Tripod C-3540V, LX-5 Ball Head
Hutech Modified Canon 40D
200 x 2 second exposures @ ISO 1600

No EQ mount, just a bit of fun with a bunch of short exposures while in the Flinders Ranges...
Orion Nebula (M42) – top right (Orion's sword). Also shown just to the right of the very bright star closest to the bottom of the photo (part of Orion’s belt – Alnitak) you can just make out the horsehead emission nebula (dark nebula in the purple/red area – an area of star formation - a stellar nursery).
