Does this look like dust on the sensor

    I was experimenting with a couple of night shots outside and got speckles in
    the sky. Is this dust on the mirror/sensor. What do you recon ? Heres the
    link to one.

    Thanks for the reply's I breathed a sigh of relief when you both say its not
    dust on the sensor. Your probably right in your thoughts of reflection from
    the street lights.

    Thanks for putting my mind at rest.

  3. Probably not. The classic case to show dust on the sensor at its worst
    is an exposure of a bright field like the sky, stopped way down (like
    f/22). What you've got is pretty much the opposite of that, so if it
    *is* showing dust you've got an entire dust-bunny! But other people's
    suggestions about what you're seeing sound reasonable to me, too.

    Exactly what I was thinking.
