Since last night was a cloud free night, my mind was definitely straying to Lady Bower, think exactly what you suggest.

This is a fantastic image!

I wouldn't have believed you could get a shot like that in England - let alone Ladybower [which is only around 30/40 miles from where I live!]

Are you shooting with a Sony 7 - I know it's small size here, but it does look pretty clean @ISO6400. I've no experience with this sort of photography - would 20 sec be optimal so you don't get any motion in the star pattern or would that matter much?

It's a superb photo anyway - the crepuscular light adding that bit extra to the spectacular view of the galaxy - very well done!

Well done for working out the photograph and its timing, for being there and for top class execution.
Thank you again all.

The A7R is a 36mp full frame camera, so high ISO is more achievable. Yes, 20 seconds I found was about the extreme length I could go to before getting movement in the stars.

Thanks for the info James - I was half expecting it to be the 7S, perhaps the current king of ultra-low light shooting. A lot less detail to downsample from though. I wonder at what sensitivity the 7S would eclipse its higher count sibling for detail? I expect 6400 is still well within the 7R's capabilities.

Amazing that today's cameras are enabling shots that just would not have been achievable before - you are at the cutting edge here!
