Jewel Box in Context

I am just getting into Astro Photography for the first time with a decent mount (HEQ5).
For fun, have a guess what camera / setup I'm using.
Settings are 2000 iso, 30 second exposures.

I have yet to build a full library of flats etc.
Processed in Photoshop.

Improved my processing a little by adding flats and being more careful not to lose things.

We give up Jethro, what setup did you use? I'll suggest you used some sort of refractor and DSLR but that's all I'm prepared to contribute to the guessing game.

Well, I used a Sony A77 and a 100mm f2.8 lens on a HEQ5 mount
8 light frames at 30 second exposures and five darks (not enough, but I was testing everything for the first time).
I have a lot to learn, but won't have the opportunity to do any more for a week due to weather (clouds and rain have rolled in...)
