    oy,
    that last pic...
    your exposure is too much.... those are the normal stars showing streaks coz of earth's natural spin.


    The red clouds have gathered up a lot now. Winds picking up too....getting lovely long exposures

    Will try for another half hour before going home.

If you're lucky you might see a single meteor streak across the sky every few minutes. You might want refer to my previous posting in this thread.

    It is best to take multiple exposure over a period of time and stack them instead to avoid the star trails.

    If the moon is high/bright, the glare will blot out the trails we are looking for?

    last shot for the night...
    I doubt its going to be visible now... getting a little brighter... Am assuming within another half hour, it will be too bright to even bother taking pics.
