    Rogelio,
    Very nice images! Even thou all images are very good there seem to be a jump in quality around the year shift 2008/2009 (from very good to extremely good :-). Is the main reason the shift in equipment (from Canon 40D and Televue to SBIG and Takahashi) or did you learn something new?

    Hi Matts and thanks for your comment! While this is a hobby where you never stop learning and challenging yourself, yes, the upgrade in the equipment meant a before and after in the quality of the data that I was able to capture, not so much because of the change in scope (although I do like the Takahashi FSQ more than the Televue NP101) but because of the change from a DSLR to a (expensive!) CCD.
