I had a chance to connect my Canon 40D directly to a Meade 8"SCT. I had trouble deciding what to shhot, but eventually decided on M31, M33, M42, and M57. It is taking quite a while to get all the images post processed, since I am still trying to learn the myriad of techniques out there to make the pictures look their best. So I will likely be adding and or replacing a lot in this gallery for a while...
