    Shahriar, you really outdid yourself this year - that's a fantastic collection. I don't recall seeing the Milky Way picture posted here before. Excellent.

    I don't recall seeing John Chumack's Tarantula Nebula image before either - psychedelic! I do remember his Saturn (and army of Saturns) as well.

    These are all great pictures - don't want to single any more out, but I know how much Frogesque's seeing the eclipse meant to him - and it's beautiful image. (And it's solar )

    Hi all.
    There are a lot of great photos on this thread. Its always a good feeling when you capture an image thats worth saving and then posting for others to view.

    So much work and time goes into getting ready for a night of imaging. Some nights Setting up and taking photos is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3 those nights are rare. other nights things go wrong from the get go and you just want to pull your hair out. My wife Laurel told me the other day that my hair line was starting to recede one to many bad nights I guess, oh well.

    Melusine This thread was a great idea. Thanks. With winter finely here I will start taking Sunset photos again. I am sending my scope out to Dr. Sherrod next week for some repair work and a new super charge. Its been 4 years sense the last super charge and I think its time.

    Again great job by all, even the folks who did not post to this thread . 2006 was a great year for photos on this forum. Eveyone seems to get better with each new photo that they post. May this year be better than the last.

    Mshirani, welcome to BAUT! Those a great images, thank you for sharing with us. Where are you located, if I may ask? You might want to label your photos even though I think we know what they are all.

    Paul, thanks, and a nice message. Yes, these are all great photos and I hope 2007 treats everyone well. The Sun should be more active this year too, I believe. :-)

    Here are some photos I remember in 2006 from people who didn't post in this thread or have been absent for some time. I couldn't find everything I wanted, but these were either crowd-pleasers that got many replies or ones I especially liked. They were all posted on BAUT, even the APOD ones. (I could have posted more...)

    Thanks!

    Thanks Melusine, a few of mine in your favourite list!

    Here's my favourites - linked below:

    Jupiter and Ganymede

    More Jupiter and Moons

    Hi-res Plato Mosaic

    Hi-Res Straight Wall Region Mosaic

    Hi-res Schiller Crater

    Hi-Res Tycho Crater

    One of my only sunspot shots for the year

    6 transit events on Jupiter at one time

    My 2nd Uranus shot for the year (and my best)

    A Saturn near the end of the year


    The animations of Jupiter I did are very pleasing to me also. Most of them can be seen in my article: Planetary Imaging and Image Processing

    Some of those made SpaceWeather. I also had the privilege of making APOD earlier this year with Jupiter:
    APOD 18th March 2006

    All of my imaging was done with a 10" dob on an EQ platform.

    Thanks for looking!

    I'd like to contribute. I was lucky enough to have access to the University Telescope for a few months. Most often the condiditions were downright terrible (St. Louis light pollution and weather) but a few nights were IMO successful. These were my first real attempts at Astrophotography

    Dumbell

    M13

    Whirlpool

    And probably my most lucky shot with weather
    Ring

    I don't have a telescope this year (not counting my Dob in the States) so will have little to show. I hope to have somthing when I return.
    My travel blog Mostly about riding a motorcycle across the US and Europe. Also has cool things that happen in between.
