i dont think the stars will ever cease to catch my wonder,
theres just so many of them and when you use a good camera you can see how many different colours there are,

What camera model though?

Also, try taking a photo with the same exposure time with the lenscap on. See if it's TOTALLY black :)

I was doing some night shots with my D100 before I cleaned the sensor, and thought I was seeing a lot of wacky coloured stars. I did the same exposure with the lens cap on and seeing the same thing.

It was just dust/sensor noise.

That is the first thing I thought of when I saw this photo, and that's why I haven't commented until then. The basis being, there simply are not that many variety of colored stars visible. It also could be how the camera does pixel color selection, if they all are stars. But they simply are not that color normally ;) (unless the UK is different)

not sure but i think the colour of the stars is due to the light breaking up trought the outer atmosphere and not the camera, or something like that :D

They'd look that color to our eye's as well. I think. Damn I'm no astronomer but I want to label 99% of those star's as digital noise! :-P

Hehehe, I only know because I've tried it previous this post, with similar results. Even photographs of the moon at high exposures with a digital cause noise like that.
