Hi Phill, Thanks, I used f4 to keep the time to 30 minuets and 100 ISO to keep noise to minimum, it was very dark, too dark to see composition ha ha, so took a few base shots at 3200 ISO to tweak composition, ideally I would have got there with some light left for setup etc, but its not a perfect world Grin
