18/19th Feb 2012. Mesmerising startrail from a very clear night in sth Leics. Targeting the celestial north pole star (polaris) via an apex from a building and using a 12mm focal length (12-6mm SWD) resulted in this wonderful spinner. Over 9hrs of earths rotation shown visibly through the stars spinning. Captured with Olympus E5 15s exposures shot continuous all night and kept from freezing over with dew/heat shield. Over 2000 images imported to StarStax which produced this final composite. Mesmerising :-)
