That's an incredible picture. And of special interest to me as Leo is my star-sign..... You know....I bet you if you did enlargements/prints of your beautiful pictures...especially if you did theAstrological constellations...you could sell them and get a nice little business going... They would look fabulous framed and hanging on the wall. Just a thought.

Thanks a lot Bee! Thats nice of you mate. You should see some of the pictures people get and put on Astrophotography forums, they make mine look pathetic! Would be great to get some kind of business or do a job like that or possibly doing anything I slightly enjoyed!Cheers mate!Jamie

WOW. How the heck do you take these fabulous photos?! They seem like I can go outside and look up and voila, I can see them! Fantabulous!!!! It seems like such a waste that we can never at this time in our lives, be able to touch those stars physically. Maybe astronauts will, but us lay people, we can only go where our minds take us.....maybe we can go????hmmmm. Great job.....I know I can be corny, but......thats because I am geeky and open to all of everything life has to offer that we do not see with our eyes or touch with our hands or smell with our noses, life is fa...
