Some really great shots there. Not much light out by me to make it worth going up for night shots unless there is a full moon. Interested to try it out though as the shots on here look clean with very little to no motion blur!

Keep in mind that night shots may not always be the best thing to do, as you lose a lot of details in the sky... This picture was taken 25 to 30 minutes after sunset, and still looks nice, and having a sky for the background to boot.
I usually set the lowest shutter speed that I dare, with no wind. (so far, anything under 1/5sec has been blurry)
I also use the compensation as needed until it looks decent on the screen.
There’s no “right” or “wrong” way to take night shots. Suggesting so is an arbitrary (blanket) statement. Experimentation and practice allow us to apply our own techniques and skills in order to create images that we’re happy with. The Spark is somewhat idiot-proof in that it can take decent pictures on auto mode under most conditions. My best advice is to go out with several fully charged batteries (at night), and experiment with different settings. Eventually, you’ll find what works best for you.
