Superb shots, Stu.
How does your nighttime seeing compare to the daytime? Are you able to stack many more images?
Cheers.

Hi Peter,

It's so variable, daytime and night time. It can be good during the day and poor at night or vice versa depending on the weather, time of day/night and time of year. If I were to generalise, then I'd say night time is better, more often than during the day.
