    Congratulations on your first image.
    Can you remember what settings you had your camera at?
    Try and get into the habit of taking notes of settings and camera speeds as it will help you figure out what works for you in the future...
    Great shot and well done...

    Do you know what you just did? I hate to be the one to tell you this, but once you point a camera at the stars and click the shutter, its all over. You should make financial arrangements for expensive mounts, refractors and ccd cameras. STAY away from the Night Sky Network. Viewing this website could result in a second mortgage.

    Nice shot though!
