Hi Miker. I think this is a lovely shot. There is a bit of star trailing making the stars less sharp but if you reduce your shutter speed to 15-20 sec and up your ISO a bit that will take care of it and give you a better look to the stars. Second that shadow at the bottom of the pine is a bit distracting, I would use content aware to get rid of it. All in all a very pleasant image.

Thanks for the info. I'm still learning with every astrophoto I do.

I echo Kim's comment re the bottom shadow
