    Very cool effect Phil. That's a lot of images to stack. You'll have to do a tutorial, but with only 3 or 4 members left it may not be worth your while. Thanks for posting.

        Thanks fellas

        Stacking is done via a freebie from 'startrails.de' and funnily enough is called 'startrails' ~ developed by a dutch/german astro-phototog and offered to the world for their pleasure
        The 250 images took about 6 minutes to stack in HQ mode - or 2 min in LQ mode
        If you're interested - download your copy from the above site

        good result, but to me the lights at the bottom detract from this image rather than add to it. probably well worth making them black too. way less distractions imho

          Yeah mate - they're a bit of a bugga to me too - esp as I was shooting over water and got their reflections too
          Thanks, Phil
