    So I finally got Light Room up and running again, so I thought id share my first pics with you guys n gals. Took these a couple of weeks ago over the Easter break near Byron bay new south Wales. Please bear in mind that I'm a total novice photographer and not even a novice at astrophotography or light room. Criticism is more than welcome, only way to learn.

    First Shot: sel50 1.8: iso 800 f1.8 20sec
    Second Shot sel35 1.8: iso 400 f1.8 20 sec

    Nice shots. They both have a slight streak due to the long exposure. However 20 seconds is not excessive. Hard to say which way to point without knowing where you are for minimal movement, and even then pointing the 'right' is not always possible. Maybe try a shorter exposure with 1600 ISO but noise will begin to creep in then.
    I learnt with astro photography just take loads with all different settings as each situation is different!

    Hey cheers, yeah I did try a few combinations, these where the best results I could muster, I've read with a nice wide angle the movement isn't as noticeable. But no more gear for me for while heh

    Good point. I hadn't factored in the 50/35. I shoot all of mine at 16mm.
