Lobster Season. Cat Season.

I can just catch these North of my roof. The half moon and reflected light off the building and high cloud is not as bad as I thought it might be but I need to stay up all night when all the lights are off to get more than 15 shots on the DSLR. The last one straight out of a PS stack.

Strangely the Cats Paw looks better with just four long exposures. Perhaps the moon had lowered by then.

They are starting to look great. I avoid stuff over over my roof. It's always horrible - so I'm amazed you got that

Thanks for that. Definitely looked a better background the later in the night when the moon was setting , everyone had turned off the lights and the cat was going toward the West away from the roof. You can see the difference easily in later images.

I just need to be able to stay awake longer and get later ,longer and more shots. Or go mono to cut out that light pollution.
