30 seconds for each shot, at 14mm ISO3200 on a 5DII.
Nothing special, just took the shots and stitched with PtGUI pro.

So you used a stitching program with that too? Couldn't have been too many with a 14mm lens. 2 maybe 3 I'm guessing?

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

I took 5 shots in portrait orientation, plenty of overlap between shots to make stitching a safe process.

I'll have to try this one of these nights when the moon isn't out

Looking for help on this one... I think I was not in a dark enough spot... It was pitch black where I was but apparently there were some lights a ways down from where I was. What's the recommendation for distance from any light?

I like it. But, then that's my thing. What you're seeing in this shot is clouds more than anything. There's light pollution on the right, but it's definitely accentuated by the clouds.

I like clouds in my shots sometimes. Light clouds can make the larger stars really glow and pop out, which can be nice.

Oh, yah. I see what you're saying about the clouds. We're actually expecting some nasty storms tonight and it was starting to get cloudy out. If I'd have known whatthay was I might have tried the stitching thing like Luigis did with his. I'll remember next time.

Have you tried the drift method? I aligned my permanent pier using the drift method. I used a webcam so i could watch a star on my computer screen then let my telescope run and adjust the pier accordingly until it's aligned...
