Grrr ;D I too want to take a shot like this. How clear was the sky that time, huh? And how far from city-lights? :D

Really good conditions. And it was around 30 km away from the city more or less but pointing towards the dark sky area!

I love the horsehead nebula! It really does look like a horsehead!
I wish I had the equipment for taking these kinda photos, someday I will though! Until then, you will have to satisfy my need for awesomecool astrophotos:)

What can I say. Two years ago I was saying the same.

But it is all in the time and also in the equipment, the things on the sky are there for us to catch them :)

You and me both. I've got a telescope and the latest Canon, but I don't know for the life of me how to work them both, or if they even can :icont-tplz:

Just practice and try to learn the equipment :)
I started with astrophotography 6 years ago. So it requires a lot of time spent in front of the telescope, camera and after the computer
