    Thanks Keith. Tried stretching the data some more and perhaps due to short exposures, cannot get to a point without saturating too much. Looks a bit better though.

    Nicely done, I like the second image the best (in your first post), it has a more natural look.

    Excellent shot Mav, hey, one image has star spikes, one doesn't...did you add the effect, or remove the effect in one image? Keep up the good work, you're inspiring me...

    Cheers
