These are my first astrophotos... taken at prime focus on my C6 refractor (fl=1200mm, f/8) with a Nikon D100 dSLR

The Orion Nebula, M42
Beehive cluster, M44, Cancer
twin clusters Chi and h, Perseus
The little Beehive , M41, Canis Major
The owl cluster, NGC457, Cassiopeia.... when I first discovered this one... I thought of "robot" or "stick man".... later I saw it listed as "owl"
M34, Perseus
M47, Puppis
