Managed to get reasonable exposure on the moonless sky last night. 5 second exposure at ISO6400, anything longer creates star trails at those cruising speeds.
Thanks
Dom

I love how steady and clear these look given that it is a long exposure in a moving plane!

Another attempt last night with 28mm f2. I am thinking about getting the 15mm wide angle manual focus lens for those.

anyone knows what that star cluster in the middle of the nightsky is?
Thanks

Dom

Sure... that cluster is the Pleiades, the heart of Taurus. The Hyades, the face of Taurus, is the "V" shaped cluster just to the left of the Pleiades.

These are amazing! I would have never thought to try this. Taken from the flight deck? Can't imagine getting that sharpness thru a passenger window.

Yes, many hours cruising during the night offers many photo opportunities.
Thanks

What a great idea! I never would have guessed those long exposures would be possible, even on the flight deck. They look great as well!
