Astrophotography collaboration

I am interested in image processing, but I do not have good enough equipment to take my own images to edit. If anyone is willing to share their unprocessed images for me to edit I would be grateful :)

What's your interest - deep space? Planetary? Moon?
Are you interested in the initial stacking of multiple images, or do you just want the stacked and dark/flat processed RGBL components for re-combining?

I believe you can download unprocessed NASA library images from Hubble etc and DIY process them, though I don't have precise details of the source libraries for them, there seems to be a selection of urls here

Scopes: Meade 8" SCT, Skywatcher 127mm Mak, Raffle winner of SW ST80
For imaging: Pentax K5, Asda webcam, Star Adventurer (new toy)
For companionship: Mid Cheshire Astronomical Group.

What equipment DO you have? Before I bought my first DSLR, I used to photograph constellations with a compact digital camera and 8 seconds exposure.

Some people are even using camera 'phones.

OK a big budget helps BUT is not completely essential.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.
