Great composition and well executed! Great work Michal. Your producing top level work here. Keep at it! Oh, and make sure to enter one of these images in the contest. A great representation of film astrophotography.

An area of our sky rarely exposed. But I love those faint nebulae with clusters of stars all about. That Takumar lens is not far behind the SMC version from what I see for sharpness. But star colours are wonderful with the Tak.

Great stuff Michal.

Thank you guys! There is still a lot of room for improvement - in estimating the exposure lenght, polar alignment, shooting under darker skies, getting a vacuum back, SMC and EDIF lenses, Pentax SDUF II, reserve of frozen E200 ... I will work on that gradually.
Nightfly, I'm worried the images violate the rule 4) of the contest - they are not present enough. I took my latest photos in September last year. There are clouds since that time. Furthermore, my guiding notebook died and I can't guide manually with my current setup. I hope it will get all right before that the comet Panstarrs appears next month.
