Hi guys, Warren here and I am not only fairly new to the photography scene but also the snow chasing scene (previously more of a storm chaser) but lately I have been trying to improve my photography skills especially in the night time. I do not own a DSLR camera but a good little entry level camera Sony DSC-H300 which I am very pleased with for only $198.

Sorry I didn't record Shutter Speed/ISO/Exposure Time but here are the results smile!

Some nice contrast there! If you use manual mode (or program mode if it has it) and force the ISO to stay lower, you'll remove a lot of the sensor noise. You'll need longer exposures since lower ISO means lower light amplification, but more amplification (higher ISO) means more noise smile

Some really nice shots there Warren. Great effort. grin

Agree 100% with "things". Once you get some "control" over the camera and get it away from auto for the long shots, it will be even better. smile

Thanks guys, most of these were taken with Manual settings with 30 Shutter Speed, 400 ISO and a 3.4F-Number however I'm still not 100% sure how the settings and the surroundings as it takes about 2 minutes to process a single 30 second frame frown.

Hi WTSL
You will have to check the manual, but I'm pretty sure what's happening is the camera is taking a secondary shot to reduce NR (noise reduction), generally the second shot (dark frame) is the same exposure length as the first shot.
I'm fairly sure you can turn that off, but you will find your pics with high noise.
