    This is last weekend's effort at the "whirlpool" galaxy. Specifics: Canon 300D (old school) @ ISO 800 for ~90mins @ 3550mm zoom f/6.3.
    THis is located just off the handle of the "big dipper".

    Yes, and that's a Hubble picture. :rolleyes:

    Yes, but you must be far away from city lights, no moon, etc...

    That's really cool. I have a buddy who has really nice telescope and you can see some amazing stuff (planets, not the woman down the street).
