  1. great start buddy!!! your get to the stage of collecting 20-30 hours of exposure for a single image before no time lol, great start for only 30 seconds

  11. nice capture! as for ISO i only capture @ ISO800 with my canon 7D, i dont mess about changing ISO as its too much of a headache preparing so many master darks for different ISO's, if your getting 10-20 on your histo @ ISO800, thats good, id say you could push the subs to 5-6 mins and that should be around the 1/3'rd saturation mark on the histo, you want as long as possible exposures @ ISO800 with out the histogram peaking above around 1/3'rd, from my dark site, i can get 10min subs @ ISO800, i could get longer, but my 7D gets too noisy with +10 min subs, hope this helps you out a touch buddy
  12. Lovely capture! hmm weird stellarium have the moon and venus in opposite positions as shown in your image? Edit> sorry i was looking at this morning on stellarium lol..
