    Hi Guys and Gals.

    Phew, all day processing and here they are..

    - 10" dob (no tracking)
    - Sony DSCP100 5mp digicam on a fixed tripod, taking shots afocally through a 32mm GSO plossl
    - 1/1000s exposure
    - I used burst mode to grab 5 shots in sequence

    Very nice. [the lower right one did throw me for a second, though (it was rotated a bit).]

    The shadow seems to indicate the Earth must be square and not round. How do you see it?

    Compare this image with Kashi's .
    We know time flies, we just can't see its wings.

    Well, we alsways knew there is this huge antichristian conspiracy going - now we can strike back, as you've actually imaged one of the four corners of the Earth!

    Edited to add: And what wonderful images they are! Congrats, iceman.

    We must not jump to any conclusion; maybe the Earth is just square on one side.

    But we can! We already know, since it's in the Bible (Revelation 7, 1)!

    Nice professional looking layout with the times. Very crisp. (I must be hungry, because the moon is looking like fruit to me.)

    Really, well done. You Aussies do nice work over there...over and down there. Thanks.
