This is a picture of the Great Orion Nebula taken using the AstroTracker
software. It was taken using a monochrome 640x480 DMK camera on a Meade ETX-125
PE telescope. Red, Green, Blue and Oxygen III filters were used. From
start to finish the setup, imaging and putting away took fourty minutes.
This image of Comet Lulin was taken on a particularly windy night
and has an effective exposure of 20 seconds, but notice that the stars are crisp
and clear with no blurring, thanks to AstroTracker. Although the comet was
moving, AstroTracker tracked the stars, meaning they were crisp and sharp.
On a night of not particularly good seeing I managed to snap this image of Messier 66 (also known as NGC 3627). It's worth noting that this galaxy doesn't have much in the way of detail, even on professional photographs (just try digging around on Wikipedia for example). However, if you look really carefully, you can see the spiral arms of the galaxy.
