Not a usual subject that attracts awards, but having tried astrophotography many years ago, I can appreciate how difficult it is to achieve, so have a Guest Editor award

Thanks Niknut Smile
@Vixalot, yes I'm using an Astrotrac, no way you could get the detail without using some sort of tracking device. Stacking helps with noise and so gives greater detail.
I'm going to do a test on next clear sky and let it go for many more images, see if it helps a great deal more. My curiousity won't let me not try hehe.

I thought you may have used a tracking thing, stunning images Smile, I have had a little go at taking pics of stars, but only with normal tripod + camera combo and they look nothing like yours
keep looking up Smile
