10 minute exposure at f2.8 for the sky

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. #40790

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.

Someone else already said Wow! But I need to add my own. WOW! :) This is a beautiful shot! I'll take a poster-size, please. :) -Terri #121059

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! #142985

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? #6097458
