Most shots taken with OM-1 cameras. Telescopes include a few shots through a 5" Astrophysics Refractor.  Most are through my 12" Schmidt-Cassegrain LX200 observatory grade telescope fixed on a concrete pier.

Some wide-field shots were tripod mounted or strapped to the guiding LX200.

While I own a color CCD camera, all of these photos are film emulsion with exposure times running upwards of an hour, guided by a secondary telescope focused on a guide star by a ccd camera.  NONE OF THESE have been stacked, tweeked, photo-shopped or edited.  Zero editing.  In fact, all are from scanned prints.  Eventually I hope to get scans of the actual negatives.
