    I know one day I'll come back to these images and say "Only 4 minutes exposures?? Only 5 frames???" but I guess it's all part of the learning process. Since I'm still not guiding, I must keep the exposure time short, and 4 minutes is as much as I can go while keeping nice round stars (well,at least round). Eventually I'll start doing autoguiding and then I should be able to do all these objects with longer exposure times.
