Congrats, amin!

My first astrophoto (Big Dipper of Ursa Major) was a very crude one. Your 'stars in the day' picture is certainly more refined :)

You may want to try the tutorial that boothee mentioned in the post on my first astrophoto. The post-processing technique will help to reduce the 'day look' and make your photo more like stars at night ;)

Nice shot! More stars than can be seen with the naked eye!

Hi Amin!

Did you stack the images? If not, you can try doing that to bring out the stars!

Good work!
