New Camera

Ok, I'm experimenting with taking pics of the stars.... I've got a trip out west planned soon and want to capture the milky way, which of course we don't get out here in DFW.

Here's an image I snapped tonight from my front yard.

Camera used is a Canon G10, set on "P" and auto, used a tripod of course.

Any of you camera guys out there (Robert, hint, hint...) got any advice?

I've got no desire to do the realllllllll long exposures that create trails across the image. I just want a nice, crisp image of the milky way and the landscape at night if I can catch a mountain or two in the way.
