Wow - stunning image Art! How do you get such sharp points in the stars with the long exposures? Any time I try long exposures with stars I end up with trails.

  Gary, you have to get a motorized telescope
tripod. If you're in the market, I've
got one cheap! the same one I've taken
all these pictures with. I just upgraded.

  This is one of my all time favorite images.
I don't know, Terri, if you're just kidding, but a 16X24 matted print is about
$130 shipped and makes quite an addition
to the home.

  This is an amazing image,Art. While I was looking at it, I remembered a place I had been one time; problably 25 years ago, that this image reminded me of. This is so true to life and brought back a feeling that I felt that evening while I sat in the valley and stared at the stars. SO COOL!
Thanks for the memories and COGRATULATIONS on the fantistic piece of true ART!

  Arthur, I am a high school band director in Saluda, SC. I'm thinking about using your photo in our next year's marching band show as a backdrop. Is this possible and how would I go about doing it?
