Same as last shot but with plane trails taken out of exposure. Gorgeous all night startrail from Dec 20th 2009. I set up the camera pointed towards Polaris at 1700hrs on 20th and exposed every 15s until 0600hrs the following morning of 21st. Over 2500 exposures were then stacked in software to produce this stunning effect, showing earths rotation. The pale pink colour is the effect of clouds rolling through the exposure. Looks like I have also caught a meteorite (top right). Captured with Olympus E3, 12-60SWD lens on 800 ISO.
