A Few Shots from a Cold Night in South Germany...
 
All images taken using the Nikon D5000. Various exposure lengths to experiment with lighting and detail in the sky. Would have liked longer star trails (and without gaps) but only managed an hour or so outside as it was below -10ºC.
 
Some short trails (and Jupiter) over Hohen Neuffen - a Christmassy Scene
3 exposures, 74s, 140s and 330s at ISO200
