Thanks Munjal. Sorry for the slow reply. Been extremely busy. Glad you like the images and find it inspiring. Sometimes if you never try, you never know whether it is possible. I guess this is what my thread is about :)

Wow...didn't realise it is coming to 2 years since I last updated this thread...

Joined Thomas for a night shoot at Kranji yesterday. Skies getting cloudy by the time I reached and only managed to get just enough photos for stacking (luckily).

Such a waste that I didn't have time to take advantage of last month's super clear skies to shoot the milky way in Singapore. Revisited Sentosa Tanjong Beach last night but noticed skies not so clear and plenty of passing clouds. The strong light pollution is definitely evident in the image. But it is what it is when shooting in Singapore.
