Had a great time at Queensland Astrofest 2014 with only one night clouded out. Imaging went until the wee hours of the morning, generally 2:00 AM when the fog started to roll in.

This is a single 40 sec exposure. I removed most of the noise with Imagenomic and graded with PS.

The Southern Cross is in the middle of frame with Eta Carina, a pink smudge about a third of the way up in the middle.

The glow on the bottom LHS is from Brisbane, about 200Km away and what you see silhouetted is a chimney.

I'm surprised that with a 40 sec exposure, there is really no noticeable movement in the stars. With the people that were obviously there, probably a few who are members of: http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/index.php, did any discussion revolve around software specific to stellar photography? I use Imagenomic, but with image stacking and some of the software about, I believe they can do a much better job.
