You must have been looking at a different sky to me?

Although there were plenty of stars to be seen, the 'seeing' was actually quite bad, and not helped by a high level haze.

So, if you were imaging under the same sky as me, then I'd say you did well to capture what you did.

Well done I'd say.

Another fine effort Brian. It is plain to see what you've got here for half an hours worth of exposure, so I would say it's time very well spent.

Moonlight would not have helped your cause, so all in all a good result.

Ron. :D
