    very nice. You actually see some of the lesser magnitude stars too. How did you clean out the light pollution so well in photoshop?

    I basically opened the image and started messing with settings until I like it.

    I've now decided on the following order for de-light polluting my image:
    1.) Color balance. More blue, cyan & green. Basically converting orangish-light pollution to bluish-night sky.
    2.) Increase Brightness/Contrast. Makes more stars "pop".
    3.) Play with levels.
    .... more stuff to make things look a little more natural
    4.) Mess with Noise filters to fake noise reduction

    And you're done! Basically, this is a way of taking light pollution to your advantage by coloring it.

    You would be amazed by how a few clicks in color balance turns the orange haze to a beautiful night blue.
