Starry sky and constellations

       If you have a compact digital camera and some tools, you can take photos of starry sky with a little patience. Though it is impossible to get rid of influence of city lights completely. Yet there are stars those are not visible with the naked eyes on the CCD. I envy you who lives in a suburbs with a clear sky.
