Sky at Night - markhumpage
Neat star trail from Dec 18 2009, Leics, UK. Extremely cold (-6C) yet clear skies, ideal for startrail work. I focused on polaris and increased the focal length to work the close up effect. Taken with Olympus E3, 12-62mm SWD. Camera left out from 2100hrs on Dec 17th through 0700hrs  Dec 19th capturing exposure every 15s for the entire period. Photo composite put together with startrails.de software. Annoying plane trails bottom right. Tripod and camera were frozen solid the following morning. Camera still firing away mind! Can't beat Olympus gear for extreme work :)
