I would really like to know the camera setup for those shots, they look fantastic and gives me hope that i can take close to some of those shots with my Nikon D5200 and 55-200mm lens.

You can, because I did this one with a D90.  But I would suggest a wider lens than a 55.  I would go to 18mm or less, unless you're willing to stitch them together after the fact.   Here are some more.

Astrophotography!  Yay.  Here's one of mine...   Astrotech 65mm APOchromatic refractor, iOptron ZEQ25 mount, Canon 60Da camera @ ISO 800, 3 minutes.   Target is the Eta Carina Nebula.  Taken at Atacama Lodge, Chile, March 2014...img.fark.net

Beautiful.  Kudos!

Guy in our club is a pretty much a beginner, but he imaged the Coma Galaxy Cluster the other night with a First-Quarter Moon next door in Leo--more than a hundred galaxies in the frame.  Also got Hickson 61 the same night.  This in pretty poor conditions and with pretty basic gear.

I freakin' love astronomy.

Those are awesome, yea I do have the default 18-55mm that came with the camera. Dont know why I mentioned the telephoto lens for the sky, that is better for the moon.

Nice work, Dr. Pain.

Who knew there were so many astrophotgraphers on Fark?
