A Second Try At Night Sky Photograpy

... and it came out much better than before. I think having the proper shutter speed made a difference. I also learned that you need some foreground elements so the viewer can make sense of what they're seeing. The top one has some trees and a horizon, the bottom one doesn't.

Let me know if you can see anything distinct. In the Photoshop processing, I played with the exposure setting which brought out the foreground, but I can't tell if I did it enough. For me, it depended on the backlighting on the monitor. If the room was a bit dark, the images looked great. If not, well, your mileage may vary.

In an case, I left them really large, so they're worth some clicks. Enjoy!

Oo, nice! In your second one, I see some streaks down in the lower left. The streaks are all about the same length and going in generally the same direction, so they are probably satellites.

Lovely. Not too much light pollution in your neck of the woods.
