Finally! There is a LOT of light pollution in this area (Bortle class 6 or so), so shooting things like this is difficult to begin with, and more so since I don't have any astro filters that might help alleviate some of the problem. The first pic has been cropped a bit, but I was just able to start making the fork in the tail visible. And with my primitive post production skills, I don't know if the colors are quite correct. But I'm satisfied for a first effort.
First pic: 105mm, f/2.8, 5 sec, exposure comp +1.3 stops, ISO 800.
The second pic is 50mm, f/1.2, 1.6 sec, exposure comp +1.3 stops, ISO 800.
