Now this is something I've promised myself to do for ages and never gotten round to it. Nice shot Bill with Polaris just off centre and the tree giving an Earthly datum point, well done but just a pity the stars have encroached into the tree somewhat, still like it tho' very well done.

52 images? Truly amazing! I've seen this in the photo magazines but I've got too much light pollution around me to do this myself. Good work.

I thought the same Alan, my test series of test shot were just at the side of my house, only 50 yards from street lighting. I did get abit of light pollution in this, but when I researched more, with this shot I switched the white balance to tungsten which brought out the blue. 30 seconds in those conditions with F6toF7 at an ISO at 400 is probably a little bit over-exposed, I should have dropped the ISO to 320. The stacking package, free of the net called Startrails.de is superb and very easy to use.
