I know little about the night sky & even less about how you guys capture & process these sorts of images (although I do enjoy viewing them) but those pics look fantastic. 8)

Thank you :D Aldebaran was around 2 hours worth of 5-minute subs and Capella 2-hours worth of 3-minute subs. Used a Sky 90 (90mm refractor) with an SXVF-M26C 10 Megapixel one-shot colour CCD camera.
