Nice simple clutter free star trail. Captured with Olympus E3 and 7-14mm wide angle lens. Composed around polaris and run all night on the eve/morning of April 7/8th 2010. Approx 2000 images then imported and stacked to produce the star trail. Love the effect of the lens on the trail.
International Space Station (ISS) passing over the Lutterworth skies at 1845 hrs for a period of approx 6 mins on 14 March 2010. Magnitude was a super bright -3.2. Being so early in the evening, with strong ambient light I had to use pretty quick exposure times, at 1s, shot continuous through till 1851hrs. Hence the dashed line effect.
The modern day ISS flies over the Whittle memorial (Jet engine) in Lutterworth, Leics. I wonder what Sir Frank Whittle, inventor of the Jet engine, would make of the current day flight technology. Amazed no doubt. A nice touch of the old vs new. Captured with Olympus E3 and 8mm fisheye. 4 min exposure total captured in 10s increments and stacked.
