Did a long walk along the beach today, and tried a picture of the stars. Having no tripod with me, I had the cam resting on a glove, which worked rather much okay.

I just took a quick shot in the ┬┤starry sky┬┤scene mode at 60 seconds. The earths rotation becomes quite obvious, so for better results, a faster shutter, or the wide angle converter must be used. The exposure is iso80 60 sec f/2.0

Yes, 60 seconds is too much for catching the stars, unless you have a motor attached to your tripod. Now that the moon is approaching Orion, you can try with a tripod and lesser exposure in the next two days.

Yep, light conditions are not ideal; the sky is filled with 'false' light from the moon and the urban area's. But I'll have a try with more higher iso, and faster shutter :)
