Photos using my Meade LX90

The first thing to say here is that I don't have a dark sky or a fixed observatory at home, so pictures taken at my home will be through the orange streetlight glare and on a mount set up in about 10 mins!.

The above image is taken with the LX90 on a Vixen mount with a b/w Atic webcam
The above image is from my back garden, using a Minolta 5D camera, 0.6 focal reducer and a light pollution filter. The LX 90 was equatorially mounted on a wedge.
It is 5 x 30 sec shots, stacked in rotnstack , de-noised in Noiseware Community Edition , then reduced to web size
