These are awesome. I'm jealous, I never get to see such a beautiful night sky around here. Thanks for sharing!

I was out for 4 hours last night. From 1:30AM until 5:30 AM hoping to capture some Eta Aquarid meteors.
I saw one, brilliant, with a really nice trail at 5AM. The peak is reported to be tonight.
Here's the Milky Way, earlier. I'm not efficient with my PP capabilities, but I've read that the public prefers unrealistic sky images.

Fantastic pics everyone! I see some from Mackay too!

Unusually lousy weather here in Mackay for winter, but last night I actually got some sky time. This will be one of the parting pics for my old Pentax K-x as I've just purchased a K-5. Details are M20 the Trifid Nebula, Skywatcher ED100 at F7.2, 84 x 1 minute frames unguided on a SW HEQ5 pro. Bigger at astrobin. M20 Trifid Nebula (Kevin) | AstroBin

You have done many great astrophotos with the K-01 - and now these with the K-5IIs!

How do you rate the two cameras, relatively speaking?
