    For anyone wishing to take a photo and has a DSLR and a tripod ...point the camera at the Milky Way when in a dark location..set the camera to manual and say between 2 and 5 second exposure.
    Take say 50 to 100 shots.
    Download a free program called "Deep Sky Stacker" load all All images as "light" frames, check all then register...the program will stack all the images so you get a long exposure.
    Play with it in Photoshop and be amazed.

    What a lovely picture: the classic galaxy shape we all have in mind, I suppose. Though I gather there are other shapes that are at least as common. Isn't there a type that is shaped like a rugby ball? Do you have any pictures of those?

    I was referring to just the first picture. Aren't M31, M32 and M110 all visible in the Andromeda Galaxy picture?

    No. I hate rugby and refuse to take any photos that give rugby a reason to exist.
    I am just starting..billions to go thru yet.

    I don't know. Perhaps you can show us...
    I would be happy to bag more than one in a capture. For me they are just pretty pictures...no science..just pretty pictures.
    I hope I don't offend the presumably countless civilizations in my photos.

    I think what astronomy does for me is to confirm the stupidity of religion. One gets to get some idea of just how big it really is and then to wonder if the proposition that it was all created for us is a reasonable view ...well I feel to think such is clearly stupid and arrogant... But these poor simple folk who believe in a creator are simply unaware on the magnitude of the universe..I mean I live with trying to comprehend the huge scale and even though I know the numbers just don't have a real idea...but god believers just have no idea .they can not compute...poor fools they confine themselves to the ancient myths that are just so wrong they can not even be called nonsense.
    Yet look at the political structures build on such ignorance.
    And our best scientific model of cosmology happily leaves room for a point of creation...sure...humans need something like that so science produces a happy, for the thinkers, a start, without a start, of our universe. Is it not obvious that science has been led to find creation...Oh the Ibig bang only deals with the evolution of the universe ..we don't know what happened a milli second earlier ..what a cop out..what an opportunity for god bothers to say..yes god..science backs us up... honestly I don't know how science can be so misled...well I do actually...but to think our science is designed to reach a bull shit conclusion...how can the universe grow from a cosmic egg presented by a priest...anyways it's about control, being the interlectual top dog...truth is irrelevant...fit all we observe into a volume of a atom..sure..we have the maths...BS...there are thinkers and followers who have no capacity to question... anyways I will bet my private parts that there is no way all that is out there will fit into a shoe box...looking at it tells me the big bang creation is for religious folk and not for truth or reality.
    Cosmology is an extention of religion. The universe can only be eternal and as such needs no point of creation.
    Look who endorse s big bang...the church and Muslims...what a transparent pile of crap....look, observe and think.

    I think M110 is the galaxy in the upper left, Andromeda is M31 and I think the bright, round thing in the lower right is M32.

    That's a very nice picture.

    Don't post when you have been drinking.
    Half a bottle of whiskey...I could not stand my legs and whiskey gives so relief and gets me to sleep but clearly gets me cranky.
    I withdraw my bet.
    Sorry for the rant it was brought on by a brush with some Christians.
