Heh, heh, I have the same problem. When we get a clear night in the forecast I start debating which equipment to get ready. It's a nice problem to have. :)

Yep, I'm out with the 55mm tonight grabbing subs on both objects I experimented on and getting some serious time on them in HA, and hopefully RGB tomorrow night.

Here's a test with my Pentax (Asahi) lens. Not a horrible lens!

That's great Joel, this will definitely be one of my targets in the future! I've thought of a bunch of them now that would look cool in a really wide view. So many objects, so little time!
