Thanks Mark. ISO-1600 is my max on the 450D.

This was my best shot of Orion and Lovejoy this evening, from a variety of poses/shots taken. Canon 450D, 13 seconds, 18mm, f/5, ISO-1600.

Very photogenic.  Looks like a nice dark sky you have there but there's a bit of a glow to the left - is that Orpington Tesco ?

What was wrong with Star Adventurer Robert?
It is healthier to be mutton dressed as lamb, than mutton dressed as mutton!
