StarTrail from 17/18 July 2013. Very pleased with this shot as it was the first real lengthy trail I have managed to capture with the OM-D. New moon phase (almost) and clear skies all night allowed a good opportunity. Captured with the Oly OM-D & 12mm. I set the camera low on tripod at 2300hrs and on 10s exposures, F2, ISO 250 shot continuous until 0400 the next morning. There is about 4-5 hrs worth of exposures in this shot. The trees in foreground were lit with a few flash bursts. Framed around Polaris (north star) to get the nice swirly effect. Great depth from this 12mm prime lens. It is superb for low light work. The final multi thousand exposure was put together in StarStax software.
