Sky at Night - markhumpage
June 30/July 01 2011. Startrail facing due south capturing the wonderful effect of the celestial equator, which causes the opposite curvature of the trails. It was a very clear evening and I had 2 cameras star trailing tonight. This captured with Oly E3 & 12-60mm. Just love the detail I get on trails using this lens. Foreground lit with few flash bursts. I used approx 800 images for this. All with 15s exposure, ISO 400, & F2.8. Final stacked image produced with startrails software.
