Seeing wasn't the best I've seen but it was clear and reasonably dark. PIxel peeping shows what may be a little coma, but that could also be the o-gps1 or even long wave atmospheric seeing issues, or even from the wood stove stirring things up at the bottom right. I know I shouldn't shoot over the house but it was the only reasonable spot at the time. It's a bit slick right now too. The trees look like the wind is blowing but it's from the gps moving the sensor to track star movement.

I did a quick reprocess of this one and push the colors a bit. You can see the Flame nebula near Alnitak(left most in Orions belt) and M42 is a little better visible.

How long go you expose shots like these? I have some light pollution in my area and often get to bright a sky. What exposure length did you use? I like these images. They show many more stars than I usually get. Thanks for posting.
