    Never tried this before.

    Not sure if it's the GH2 or the settings or me doing something stupid.

    Looks like splotches. Not sure if that's called banding. Seems to increases with longer shutter speeds.

    ISO 160, 15 sec


    ISO 800, 6 sec


    ISO 800, 2 sec


    ISO 1600, 1/4 sec

    Never mind, it was me, my monitor was at 16 bit, changed to 32 and looks much better.

    Could have done it better, but circumstances (1am, cold, force 4 winds, bright moon) made me wait for a better opportunity which never came along... I'll have another go the next time I'm out of light pollution.
