Star Trails

1.18.12 – I ventured out in the cold night to try my hand at some star trails. I think I need a more interesting foreground, and lots of practice.

    Cool. How long was your exposure to get these?

    • They’re actually multiple exposures stacked in Photoshop. Photo-stacking achieves similar results as one long exposure, but with significantly less noise and more control over variables. The first consists of 11 minutes and the second of 13 minutes of consecutive photos with each exposure lasting 10-12 seconds.
