Have you tried panning?

Yes, thanks, with birds and airplanes in flight.  High speed boats too, when in close.

But the issue with this thing was my sloppiness in shooting in an AE mode letting the auto metering hold the shutter interval at 1/6 second .... over exposing the image and giving a huge amount of hand shake. Look at the hand shake in the red tower lights .... huge.

And as Moti pointed out, not knowing what my subject really was ..... those BRIGHT LIGHTS, even brighter than the MOON!!!!

So my point in posting this mess was to show the value of some careful post - mortem - izing to show the difficulty of metering specular lights in the dark .... huge over-exposures and motion blur.

So to me, it is better to go manual and use one's head. .... which I didn't.

BUT it won't bite me next time. I learned a good lesson. slow learner at times!!!

Cheers,
