Very interesting. Thank you for posting.

1) What is the "astro modification" used?

2) What does "5x1m" and "10x2m" mean in your data?

3) What does "no darks" mean?

4) What does "sqm 18" mean and how is it different from "sqm 18.10"?

5) Is that camera temperature in degrees Celsius?

I was wondering the same and did a little digging. Here is what I found:

1) The modification looks like the ones done by these folks here: http://www.sciencecenter.net/hutech/canon/
2) I think he means 5 frames at 1 minute each or 10 frames at 2 minutes each. These would then be stacked.
3) No dark frames to eliminated sensor hot spots. These are loaded in PS as a separate layer to exclude any "false stars".

Out of interest could you stack the images without an equatorial mount or you do it by hand?
