Sky at Night - markhumpage
Star Trail captured on evening/morning March 4/5th 2011. Looking due south and a very nice example detailing the opposing curvature of the trails above and below the celestial equator. Image also contains ISS with space shuttle Discovery and another satellite object (bottom between trees which Im not sure name of). Also caught a tiny meteor (bottom right just above tree). Captured with Olympus E5 & 7-14mm. Temps dropped to -1C overnight and skies were reasonably clear with some cloud migration. Home made dew shield kept the ice/moisture at bay. Camera was put outside at approx 7pm and left out all night until 8am the next morning continuous shooting. 15s exposure @ F4 via remote cable locked (for continual shooting). 2000 images imported and stacked to produce final exposure.
