Welcome to the Twilight Zone, Dawg. What exposure did you sue for that shot(s)?

Thanks everyone. Brut I shot that in manual mode, f/2.8, 16 seconds,38mm focal length (35mm equiv.)normal scene mode and hard sharpness. Then I processed it with the Gamma corection and contrast in PhotoFiltre!

Lisa I was spurred on by someone at the Easysharers forum that was getting frustrated not being able to shoot stars. I took it on myself to find a way! Hope folks aren't getting bored with them as now that I know how, I may shoot more. I just need a star chart to find the constellations and where they should be this time of year! Oh well...Old Dawgs must learn new tricks!

This is the coolest thing I have seen on here lately... I wonder what a longer exposure would look like, maybe even cut out some of the PP... The p880 has a bulb setting... maybe after I fab up another of those shutter release brackets I can try this out with a 30 second shutter speed and see what comes out! I have seen a lot ofvery cool stuff from the dawg lately... impressive, to say the least!

That's the Pleiades, a star cluster. It was by Taurus, right?

Thanks for the compliments Inn! David I wouldn't know Taurus if it came up and bit me! LOL An astonomer I'm not! I do know it was to the east and slightly north and about 60 or 70 degrees above the horizon! I have had others on the Easysharers forum say it was what you said! Inn I believe you will get a lot better photos of it than mine as I'm limited to 16 second exposures and can't really get a good focus on it!

I just returned from the easyshares forum and by gum David you hit it right on the head. It is slightly to the south and kind of above Taurus after all so you would be right. It is what you said! Thanks man. If I hang around here too long I'm gonna get edycated!! LOL
