And I'll be shooting with an D80, so I have the 1.5x crop going on.  Can you get any detail from shooting any Nebula's?  

I'd recommend NGC 7000 North America Nebula and it would include the nearby Pelican Nebula. They are both bright enough that a 3 minute individual shot would be very pretty. I'd also skip the 2x as with a crop sensor you are almost at 300mm which is not bad. Also much more forgiving of poor tracking / bad polar alignment than 600mm would be.

Tim thanks. I'm coming to photography from an unusual door. Astrophotography. 4 years ago I had no idea what an ISO was. Just now starting to figure out what Aperture priority is :)
