September 29, 2007 @ 11:03pm EST in central Florida. Image taken using an Orion StarMax 90 Mak-Cas, a TV 25mm EP, and a Canon A95 (.4 second exposure @ F2.8). You've got the right idea, but you're exposure is too long and your aperature is probably not open enough. Try using the above settings, and then you can customize as your images get better. Hope this helps. Clear skies.
