    that first one is insane (in a good way). Is this a combination of different exposures?

    Hi Luke,

    no I just put the camera on a tripod and stuck it in the sand and used a manual timing setting of around 30 seconds - hit and miss. Shot is looking south from Forster Australia. You can see the southern cross constellation if you look closely. I plan to stick the camera on my star tracking telescope soon to reduce the star blur from earth movement over the period of the exposure. I'll post the result.

    wow do I feel stupid now. On my other computer screen, I saw the first two images as one...... I was wondering how in the heck you got the water so well illuminated under that night sky. I'll look forward to your telescope experiments

    maybe they should be considered a diptych.
