This one is getting close.  Seeing the perfect spot to place the tripod, but need to block out that glowing streetlight on the right.  Then a secondary long exposure shot to capture the stars to blend into the final photo.  Also perhaps a close-up of Neptune in the foreground to add to it and also at a moment when no car stuck at the stop light with its headlights glaring (after midnight usually gives a better chance of that) . . . and I should be just about there.  For now this one moves up to the top of my rankings as the #1 favourite on Bendigo Scenic and a motivator to finally get it just right.
