Sky at Night - markhumpage
Star Trail captured on evening/morning Dec 8/9th. Looking due south and a very nice example detailing the opposing curvature of the trails above and below the celestial equator. Caught a meteor too (top right). Captured with Olympus E5 & 7-14mm. Temps dropped to -4C overnight and skies were exceptionally clear. Home made dew shield kept the ice/moisture at bay. Camera was put outside at approx 7pm and left out all night for 12 hrs of continuous shooting. 15s exposure @ F4 via remote cable locked for cont shooting. 3000 images imported and stacked to produce final exposure.
