Best shots yet - Shot in Long Island NY

The shot above features the Orion constellation, on the right side of the pic.
Below: The Pleaides and Hyades star clusters.

It sure is nice to be able to take pics under less light polluted skies...These were shot on Long Island.

These are fixed tripod shots, taken with the Minolta SRT-201. I believe I probably used the 45mm "pancake" lens for this shot (stopped down a stop or two) - it was way too cold to take proper notes.
