Great shot.

So they're not bad these Samyang lenses then?

Nice work and shows lots of patience, a long time to stand and listen to bells ringing. How long after they stopped did th ebells stop in your head ?

Wow, Ant! You have really perfected those star-trail images! I guess the next step is a long-exposure one but following the earth's rotation (with a mount), and flash something in the foreground (like a tree) to have both starry sky and tree in focus.

Cheers all for your comments.

Aris - I did get the telescope out from hibernation a few weeks back, but just took some shots of the moon as either the batteries or drive are dead.
