Scarborough star trails

Sign in to follow this  

At last! after loads of practice, finally a star trails work I'm happy with!

Taken at Olivers Mount, Scarborough.

This one's made up of 78 photographs with each having a 60 second exposure at f/3.5. ISO 200. (Giving and exposure time of 78 minutes.)

I used a torch to paint light on the obelisk for the last 10 exposures.

The police seemed quite intrigued when they stopped to ask what on earth I was doing!

I felt like a right geek explaining!

Fantastic effect Paul. Was worth the effort. What software did you use to do the stacking??

works pretty well and it's free!
