I have noticed BTW it is clear here tonight so think I may go and have a play
Alright then, thanks wavemachine.
Nice work Jimbojumbo, I can see you're on the right track. I can also see the plough. I'm guessing the star near the chimney is a planet not a star, stars twinkle, planets in our solar system don't, and they're generally brighter, that's about all I can tell you. Plenty of material out there though. If you used a higher iso setting for that shot you would have recorded more stars too but this is down to the individual as to what to portray.
Oh, there was something else, please make sure your camera is firmly attached to your tripod before shifting them about together
