    G'day Mike
    Hmmmm - the planes - I tend to like 'em as they create a slightly different story to the image

    Intervalometer ... nup, just a remote / cable release. Setting up is minimal - around sunset, focus to infinity then flip AF to MF
    The camera is set to "M" + continuous + 30sec + max aperture + ISO-800 + 1x zoom ... and away it went till the battery ran out about 2-hrs later

    1st image was about 30 minutes after actual sundown and the rest just followed happily - while I was inside reading a book

    Hi Pete

    Being a Downunder fella, we don't have your 'pole star' ... we have a bevy of 'em called the Southern Cross
    He're's how we Downunder-ers find our way at night :)

    Great trail! I don't mind planes and satalites in my trails either. To be honest I think a nicer foreground would work better.

    G'day mate

    Yep - I agree ... and I have dozens of others with buildings, church spires, farm windmills etc. as foregrounds. At the moment I am on a small farm in outback NSW and that's all I could come up with :(
