I photographed this last night using my modded Canon 350D through a Williams Optics 81mm refractor @F5.9
This is a pretty big object, my focal length is about 480mm......ish and is a total of 1 hour and 4 minutes exposure time.
It is the first time I have managed to get a photo of this, my previous 3 attempts have all ended in tears / bitter disappointment.
You can have a look at the equipment I used to take this image on my website here http://www.digitalrust.co.uk/equipment.html
