    Really cool pics man. Space has always fascinated me. Our brains can’t comprehend the sheer size of space. Billions of solar systems in a galaxy and billions of galaxies in the universe are numbers we can’t fathom in our world.

    Great detail there.

    You should be able get good pics of Jupiter now. You're supposed to be able to see the moons using binoculars. (According to one article, all 48 moons!:rolleyes:)

    Imaging planets is actually harder than imaging deep sky objects that are much further away. I tried Jupiter the other night, but the problem is that it is so bright by the time I lower exposure time down enough to see details on the surface the moons are no longer visible in the picture.
