    Stunning photo's Sir! I actually just used this photo as a comparison to mine to try to figure out why you have so little noise distortion and I do. Here's the link on Reddit: www.reddit.com/r/photography/comments/1xihc3/how_do_i_red...

    I would love any advice

    Wow! Superb astrophotography! I love the composition, clarity, coloring, and the trees in the foreground. All those stars in that beautiful night sky make me think of a verse-" He counts the number of the stars; He calls all of them by name."- Psalms 147:4
