Friday was a clear night and I took the opportunity to cross of 5 more messier objects from my list. One of them is shown here.

is this another from a static tripod?!?! I think this is amazing.

Yes. I was pleased with this. The galaxies were quite high in the sky and the seeing was good. I think this technique would be a good way of introducing youngsters to the subject. To get any sort of result, you need to apply all the key good things like a good tripod, good focusing, stacking, basic processing etc.
