    Very nice. The shutter was open just long enough to catch some nice trails, but without totally distorting the moon :thumbup:

    Thanks to all. The shutter was about 10min. I forgot what the aperture was. It was trial and error.

    I think it may have turned out better if I used a smaller F-stop instead to show more contrast between the sky and the stars. It's only 30sec walk from my place, I can take it again.

    Very Nice!!. If you want longer star trails you could try it with a ND filter maybe?
