Man that is (as usual from Damian) breathtaking! I just did a side along comparison of my image from the same night and for a fleeting second considered giving up :D

The ones I've seen in the past have been taken in the Bahamas. It's a hard life, isn't it...

Felix, my first Jupiter took a very long time to capture and process and delivered 6kbytes (yes, as in you could have viewed it on a zx spectrum) of blurry brown. I had to laugh or I'd have cried.

I doubt I'll ever show anything like the Peach but one day I'll maybe have something that is recognisable.

It's an SCT so faster at f/10 (i guess). Aperture helps; but as ed says, he does a lot of imaging abroad, where he gets better seeing and more clear nights. I don't imagine he gets to travel for free though, and he probably has duplicated some of his kit to leave a set of heavy stuff out there (that's what i'd do, but i hate lugging stuff around).

If you look on his website you can see his results from over the years with different scopes; i suspect he is also a master at getting the absolute most out of his data.
