If you blow it up you will see the faint meteor or comet trail in the upper middle right quadrant, above and just to the right of the two tall buildings..

I know that Ken .... it was the pick of about a dozen images. Shame I didn't manage to get the fireball that went over at about 00:45 west to east right over me - probably a lump of metal from someones space program.

I normally image deep space objects (http://www.lakestudio.co.uk/garden_obs/index.htm - just click on Deep Space as its all in a state of flux) so these are much closer to home. I have Irridescent clouds, Notilucent clouds and Aurorae under my belt now. There isn't much left in or just outside of our own atmosphere.

Thanks for sorting the link out. Much appreciated.

Thanks, that's handy to know. I'll have to do what I can. We've got a couple of lanterns that I normally put nearby out of shot so I can frame the image. I think the 550D has a flash which in total darkness will bounce around to set the range before taking the photo.
Fingers crossed

You will probably get a blurred image if a long exposure is used due to movement. You are right not to use the night setting as this is for special effects photos. If you use the portrait setting the default uses a large aperture so that the depth of field is reduced giving an out of focus effect behind the subject.
You are going to have to use flash which when the camera is in auto mode it should come on automatically. Try and get a solid background behind you but be careful as you may wash out some detail on the fish, commons are prone to this being light in colour.
You could also suffer with red eye but not a problem as the camera has a red eye reduction setting or you could get rid of that once the picture is on your PC. You can also avoid red eye by not looking directly at the camera, slightly right or left and of course looking slightly down at the fish works as well
Once you get the hang of it you should get some reasonable results. Having access to something like Adobe Photoshop does give you a lot of options post production. Some of the guys on here will tidy a photo up for you.

Night Shot Query

Can anyone give me some pointers for taking night shots with a Canon 550D?
I'm looking to take shots of carp captures in near total darkness.
The DSLR tips I can find are all aimed at portrait or scenic shots at night where you can use long exposures to raise the light captured.
They suggest achieving this by putting it in M mode and selrcting the lowest f number the lens allows. I think this will result in long exposures still.

Any ideas? How about I use the normal portrait setting or just put it in auto?

I plan to use a tripod.

Take it that PS (Photoshop) is what we are referring to does offer a lot more opportunities to save in different formats, It also handles just about all known formats which some other operating systems can’t cope with, or find a programme to open it with. I would be surprised if when the Canon software is loaded and the files downloaded directly to the PC that the problem would continue.

This happened to a friend of mine from the camera club. He was using a Canon compact (not sure which one). One of the members suggested he load from a card reader and open in PS, before saving to the desktop (or where preferred). Worked, apparently.

Using flash for outdoor shots can add a sparkle and fill in shadows on a dull day
