I have recently come across the following really interesting astro-photography site:

Jean-Christophe Bayart is the site's creator.

His web site presents a number of spectacular images, many of which were captured with The Imaging Source astronomy cameras. For example, there are several archives of planetary and lunar images.

Below is an example image of Mars, which was captured with a DMK 21AF04:

In addition, Jean-Christopher has published several articles, detailing the various methods of capturing and post-processing images. These guides are aimed at amateur astronomers, who are just starting out.
