Key to numbers of stars:
The quality of the pics listed above clearly varies, and you will see that it has generally improved with time! As a rough guide, the starred pictures are better than average, as follows:
* - 'reasonable' pic - either some of my best digiscope, or a reasonably good DSLR
** - 'best' pics - two stars indicates what I think are my current best pictures (nearly all DSLR)
