Shot this last Thursday night. It's a total time of only 5.5 minutes at ISO 6400. Hope to get longer exposures soon.

Just watch the histograms of the rgb channels and get them even for the proper color balance...

Hey Mark, thanks for the tip.  I knew that graph thing had some kind of purpose!  Here's an adjusted version and your right, it does look more balanced.

Much nicer.Rule of thumb watch the Histogram it dosnt lie.Keep them balanced and make sure you arnt hard adainst the side .If its hard against the side you are clipping out info.

Keep up the good work
