If my first shot had looked like that, I would have been jumping for joy. When you start stacking multiple images and stretching the data will be the time you find out how good they are. The stacking software, DSS, wants to see round stars and that can make things interesting. It throws out images when stars are too oblong and that is the problem I am facing as I want to take longer exposures. I think this is a fantastic start.

Yes I was coming out of my shirt running around the yard....the camera was way low on batteries, dew was forming all around, I didn't have my dew zapper hooked up, but when that first photo pooped in on the screen my eyes went to the size of softballs!!
