My First Photo's with My Meade D.S.I II Colour Camera - 2011

All Photo's Taken from home in the backyard - Suburban Environment

This page of photo's are acquired using my 150mm f/5 Newtonian Reflector on a EQ3 Single Axis Motorised Mount

& the Astronomical Association of Queensland's  borrowed 203mm Meade LX10 SCT on a Meade standard Single Axis Motorised Wedge.

All are unguided (no auto guider) I was the auto guider, I had to constantly re-centre the object at the scope while watching screen.
