I have gone all the way before, despite the sign because it's public property up to 10' beyond the high tide line. Didn't notice the stone bench but I'll have to go back and see! Took some decent photos of the moon setting over the Towers from those rocks. Thanks for the comment 👍🏽

Anything over 30 seconds requires a star tracker, but all star trackers have periodic error, preventing exposures past 4-5 minutes unless your system has a guide scope as well. It gets fairly complicated 🌠✌🏽

I've found it possible to get good results in less than perfect conditions. For this I was pointing just west of Block Island, so there was some light coming from Westerly but using a light pollution filter and some editing I was able to get this result which isn't bad.
