Still trying to sort out a few things i am having with the canon 350D and my scopes regarding star trails,but a perfect clear night lastnight so i went out with my LX90 10" and focused on one main bright star with the camera and left it that using no eyepiece.

I took just one pic at and ISO800 1x1min just to see what i got and this what i came up with.

Hi Rob,

Nice job. For one sub it gives a good idea of what you can achieve.

Is that picture straight out of the camera - any processing carried out?

Hope you don't mine my attack on you image it's just that I always see this as an 'apple core' rather than a dumbell, with red skin left top and bottom. I just decluttered the image, increased luminosity and colour intensity of the 'core' and darkened the backgound a tad. The original is a good one and deserves better treatment. Sorry!

Quite an achievement Rob, getting an image to show at all on such a short trip.

At least it shows what could be gained by increased exposure time or more subs. It can only inspire you to better results.

Phil and CW have both made valiant efforts to bring out more, and succeeded fairly well with the data they had to play with.

But, there is no substitute for getting the shopping bag full at one shop.

Stupid analogy I know, but you know what I mean.
