Nice shots, especially considering that no autotracer features were used (I assume).

As I've stated elsewhere and 'elsewhen', it's amazing what people can achieve with relatively simple and cheap technology that's available today.

Right, no astrotracer and cheap lenses.  The first was from the wide end of a standard zoom, and the other two were from a DA 50/1.8.  The hardest part was focusing.  (I tried to get Andromeda in the DA* 300, but failed.)
