Canon T3i _1600 iso _ about 40min ............. 1st attempt at processing in PS CS5 .......... I've since turned to LR-6 !!! This one is about 15min long and no processing at all Here are a few of my first images I ever shot. Didn't know much processing at the time.

This is a shot from my back yard over the south pasture and was processed in LR-5This below, was a second attempt at processing I do love my Canon T3i, but, after 3 yrs and interest in video's, I've already got my mind set on an upgrade to the Canon 70D

This was taken in North Miami/Dade, Florida.
The most challenging part of this type of photography is the weather in Fl, there is the cloud cover and a lot of water vapour in the air even when there is no cloud. I took this a week ago (9/28) and it was only lastnight again that there was a relatively cloudles sky to try again.
This is from 20 exposures that have been stacked. Will provide the process I use upon request. There are many different processes some are at lonelyspeck.com, which was my starting point
Hope you like it.

Juist found this site - pretty cool! Lot's of great images posted for sure.
A few from dark skies in New Mexico, from 2 trips, one in 2014 and 2015. Deep sky objects imaged with a Canon T2i, modified to respond to Hydrogen Alpha, through a Stellarvue telescope on a Paramount Tracking mount. Star trails shot with an unmodified Canon 5DSr on a fixed tripod (bunch of shots combined into one image...). Comments and critiques welcome and appreciated, thanks for looking!

I'm a beginner at astrophotography, so I know my photos aren't great, but they're getting better!
I'm using a T5i with a 14mm lens from another manufacturer for wide angle shots, and an 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with the camera at prime focus for deep sky.
