    Trying long exposure my first :) I did try startrails but I don't think I can do it with my camera :mad:

    That's just a bit too long and a bad framing. You don't need the bridge cutting through. Star trails won't really work for anyone without tracking equipment, but with it, almost any camera will do some kind of job.

    Not sure I understand that statement Mike, I suspect the OP is aiming at something like this (not my image).

    which specifically doesn't need any tracking equipment.

    It's excellent for a first attempt, certainly better than mine which are all thwarted by me being lazy and not even trying.

    I agree with Mike that there are framing issues, and as well as the technique you need to consider the overall shape of the final image. But excellent first attempt.

    Sorry mind was on other things. You are right of course!
