Scope setup for imaging M51 - 8th May 2008

Some pictures of my telescope setup whilst I was imaging M51 on the 7th/8th May 2008
M51 was straight up!

Homemade bracket for guide scope, homemade guidescope using 200mm Tamron telephoto lens and my DMK CCD camera with a 2x barlow lens afixed to the barrel.
Also note my homemade heater strip.
I ran out of money!
