So 5 min subs @ISO 800 and F5.6 is asking a lot. Certainly take the polariser filter off and try 1600ISO and 600sec subs. Link here to my attempt -

Thanks for that Craig,

Had a look at your image, very nice, look fine to me.

Out at Stockport would definitely offer darker sky's for capturing The Witch.
