Astrophotography from South East Queensland

Most of the astrophotography images in the gallery were taken around the greater Brisbane area located in South East Queensland (Bortle Class 7), where I battle the ever increasing threat of light pollution. The equipment used can be seen in the equipment page.
 
The images include the good, the bad & the ugly. A short description of the capture setting is included plus location and occasionally I include calibration / processing techniques.
