Here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/antoniseb/8604993982/in/set-72157633124927707) is one of my first experiments with my Sony RX-100b using an iOptron SkyTracker with a 30 second exposure. This was zoomed in to the limit that the camera supports (x3.6) After I figure out how to take better pictures, I'm planning to try and get shots of each of the Northern constellations (without foreground trees), and to try and image as many of the Messier Objects as the camera can capture... mostly to get a sense of which Messier Objects are especially difficult.
