This picture is an example that anyone can take really nice astro photos.
I have taken these pictures using regular CANON Power Shot S5IS with 8 megapixel resolution.
ISO was on 200 with F3.5 setting.
I used regular Solar eclipse viewer which I got from astronomy store few years ago to view solar eclipses. It is just sheet of darken plastic rated 5.
I held it in front of my camera and took couple of picture. There is not much one can do in about 10 minutes work break. But here is the pictures.
