Back at the dawn of time, yes. Then it was my job for several years. Then I moved on to other forms of madness such as landscape photography.

With a 200mm and a 2x you are going to be shooting at f4+ depending on which lens you have. This is not a one shot object. You will need a couple hours of exposure as a minimum at f5ish. Take 1-3 minute individual shots and combine them with a stacking program.
One way to get way more luminance data to combine with the shot is a Hydrogen Alpha filter (probably about 12nm would be perfect) that you can stick in the camera. This would be huge for excellent detail but it will need a couple hours of exposure to.
I'll stick up some of my astro shots and if you have questions just let me know.
