Sky at Night - markhumpage
June 28_29 2011. Summer startrail with noctilucent. Clear skies following the passage of a cold front set up for a good night of star trailing and potential to catch noctilucent. I was lucky as the NLC's came out to dance approx 0300hrs just before daybreak, as seen her in the bottom right of the startrail. Foreground lit with flash bursts. Approx 800 exposures total for this one shot. Captured with Oly E5 & 7-14mm. 15s exposures, ISO 400, F4 shot continuous through night. Final stacked composite produced with startrails software.
