Astro Images Required for project

Greetings all
I am working on a project that displays amateur astro photos that correlate to what is being looked at through the eyepiece. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in submitting their photos for it.

Thanks

Not to sound too negative, but this might be why there are not any replies to your post yet: most astrophotographers work hard to capture far more than can be seen through an eyepiece. In fact, for most of us into astrophotography that is exactly why we do it. We do it to see so much more than can be seen visually. Our human eyes are not all that sensitive. A modern CCD camera will see far more than our eyes, and so will just about any video camera or consumer camera.

Perhaps you have not exactly explained yourself as to what you are looking for. Are you looking for pictures that replicate what might be seen through an "average" amateur telescope (that is very hard to define anyway), or are you interested in seeing/comparing what the difference might be between looking and taking a long exposure, or planetary photograph?

Such an image would be similar to an unprocessed photo.

It wouldn't be very interesting.

e.g. most galaxies that I image can't even be seen through the eyepiece from a light polluted location.

An anti-light pollution filter & lots of integration time +
processing brings the picture out.
