well I haven't been about for a while and after selling my d300 and f4 lens ive even given up on my wildlife shooting and im going to consentrate on my astro imaging.

ive finaly got the set up to guide and this is my first test shot sfter much frustration with the synguider.

but after some practice setion use my fake star at the bottom of the garden .

I had been getting 20 min shots but this shot was not on timer but manualy locked and after getting a cup of coffee and a bit to eat I settled for 34min and about 2 hrs in (old school)ps6.

im going to have to stick to this style of shooting long exposure as I haven't got a pc to cope with stacking 40mb file from the sony a 550 in raw.

hope you and ill get some shots of my set up a.s.a.p

m31 taken on a ed80 evostar sony a550. eq5 pro . sw guidescope mount  SW synguider celstron travel scope as my guide scope (this scope very cheap ebay).

many thanks j
