    You haven't done badly at all but what makes it particularly special for me is the clarity of the sky.

    Agreed. It could be nice if you left the camera going after the spin on a moonless night and got some startrails too... :wink:

    Star trails would take a lot of time, then would over expose the rest of the shot.

    You'd be better off taking the shot for the orb, then a 2nd on tripod for the star trails.

    I had a play with this tonight, a lot of fun and cheap, going to have some fun with this I think.

    yer heaps of fun, i thought with star trails it may look odd having trails of light in the background with bright orange lines all through the image already

    LOVE IT

    Can we see photos of your brother after he did this or was he burned to a crisp ?

    ( hope he wore good protective gear and goggles )
