Moon and Stars

It was very still tonight when I got home, with a bright moon, so I thought I’d try some long exposures. The shot of the Plough (and the lights of Angus on the other side of the Tay) was exposed for a minute. The moon over the North Sea was 30 seconds. Both shots are from the same location, looking in different directions.

Edit: P.S. I've just noticed that with the minute-long exposure you can see the rotation of the stars in the sky if you click through to open the picture full size, and look closely; the tracks are at different angles, centred around the north.
