I doubt that I'll be able to rid myself of 'city glow' as I'm right in the center of an extra 
big city. I'm sorry but I don't own either the Noct of 75 S'lux for my Leica's though I 
agree, it would be an interesting comparison. I would like to make some sort of a valid 
test and, since I'm not familiar with the requirements, how does this sound?: 

I point the camera, with a roll of Neopan 1600 in it, on its back, straight up to the sky 
and take a number of frames in succession @ 12/secs w/ the 50 and 7 secs. with the 85. I 
develop the film in a scrubby, D76 type developer for a 4x push. My camera does have 
some sort of mirror-up custom function, so that'll be good.

What else do I need to do? I remember something about shooting away from the polar 
extremes as that is where the sky spins fastest? Anything else I can do to get useful 

Maybe if a Leica rep reads this, she'll offer us a 75 and a Noct to test against<s>?
