Bruno has a Canon Digital Rebel 300D digital SLR, which he uses for astrophotography.
He also has an Orion ED80 apochromatic refractor and a Meade LX-200 10" SCT,
both of which he plans to use
for astrophotography in conjunction with the Digital Rebel.

|M52 & Double Cluster - Nov, 2006
Here are my first
2 images captured last fall, Processing was done in Jan. 07, after
purchasing Images Plus. Many thanks to John and Charles who helped me do
this first stacking effort. I'm sure that with more time, I'll be able to
further develop my processing skills.
Dates: 2006- Mid November
Location:- Cattle Point, Victoria.
Equipment:- Canon Rebel 300D, Orion 80mm ED, and HEQ5 mount.
Exposure:- 15 frames each - 60s light frames at ISO 800, no darks nor flats.
Processing:- Light frames from each session were stacked and developed in
basic processing only, further work required.
These are first 2 images ever captured , with modest success ( more to come,
