Do you have a record of your camera settings Scott? (Long enough exposure for the stars to have moved a bit.) Grand picture!

I saw this from Papa Westray (Papay) outside a blocked in mobile home with John Harper, when I was up doing some plumbing for him in the Spring of 2000. Unfortunately, I didn't have a tripod for my camera.
