Default Anyone try night sky shots? Banding?

Never tried this before.

Not sure if it's the GH2 or the settings. Seems the banding increases with longer shutter speeds.

ISO 160, 15 sec


ISO 800, 6 sec


ISO 800, 2 sec


ISO 1600, 1/4 sec

I've no knowledge of the GH2 personally.
But I cant see any banding on my screen just clouds and stars. Perhaps it's my screen or my eyesight.

Maybe banding is the wrong word, shows how much I know.

If you click the first image to make it larger, the sky looks like splotches. Not sure what that's called.

Never mind, it was me, my monitor was at 16 bit, changed to 32 and looks much better.
