Very cool shot. I like the way you include bright stars in your images.

I really like 109 for some reason. It just has such a neat shape. Looks quite good for only 30 sec subs on a stock DSLR.

Thanks all, a first try ever on this for me. I may have to break out the C-8 and try it with that, if I get brave!
