    Yeah I was seeing if the stars would blur into lines due to the 8 second exposure. No way you're holding the camera still enough in the air to do long exposure photography

    I've been able to get about 4 seconds exposure without too much blur with the p4

    Very calm nights and only about 70ms

    You don't have to believe me, just search this forum plenty of examples of even 8 second exposures. I normally shoot around 2-3 seconds though max for best quality.

    "How-To" Long exposure picture thread! Plus pictures!

    Here are some 8 second ones with an insprire - Long Exposure Photography

    You should search lots of threads rather than hijack this one , night photography does not use Nd filters we wan't the most amount of light we can.

    If you didn't know, you got Mars and Saturn in that shot. Nice!

    Actually i wasnt sure the brighter of the two "stars" didn't look red enough to be mars in the pic and thought that was Saturn and mars ended up behind the tree.

    Leroy or anybody know for that matter, why when in full manual mode I can take a picture and then take a picture again not changing any settings immediately after and the two will look differently nine times out of ten. Like the lighting will change quite drastically from one picture to the next

    You must be using auto white balance and it's getting confused. Use manual white balance for consistent shots.

    You did good. Other than Mars and Saturn, also you have most of the constellation Scorpius in view with the two stinger stars, Shaula and Lesath just above the roof of a house.
