None of them were taken by me, neither my camera or me is anywhere near that standard and by a long way.

You should try "starry night for enthousiast", an amazing tool.

Google Skymap is a great learning tool for budding enthusiasts.

Now if only I can figure out why I can't install anything from GooglePlayStore anymore.

PS: Stellarium is also a long time favourite of mine but it needs the grunt of a good PC.
