Wow! I almost cant believe it :10: Thanks everyone! :giantsmile: Doug, I will never forget in one of your tutorials where you showed your Antares region taken with I believe it was an Astrotech 72mm. And you said something along the lines of " don't expect to get results like this immediately ". Well its been something I have been striving for. Great tutorials, forums, advice...Thanks much to all who entered and voted, and especially for the guys that made this site happen, there is much aloha here!

Well done, Pete.
Sometimes I lie in my bed at night, and look up at the stars...and I wonder...where the hell is my ceiling?
