Entering The Half Pipe by CapturingTheNight Entering The Half Pipe by CapturingTheNight

The third quarter moon rises on the horizon and enters the "half pipe".

I made a big mistake with this startrail. For the second time in a row I forgot to dial in my custom white balance. The camera tries its best but the auto white balance setting leads to unnatural star colours. Until I get around to manually changing the white balance on all the RAW files this will have to do for now.

Some of you may be wondering why I didn't have my astrophotography setup out on a good night like this. The truth is I have had a back/hip problem for the last two weeks and I physically can not lift the heavy mount. Hopefully recover soon.

Canaon 60D
Tamron 10-24mm @ 10mm
Aperture F/3.5
ISO 800
245 times 30 second exposures
Stacked in "startrails.exe"
Final processing in PS CS3

I like seeing how the trails curve in the opposite direction on opposite sides of the celestial equator.

:ohmygod: Took me a minute to figure out the strange pattern in this startrail :rofl: I'm not quite the astronomer you are, Greg and my sense of direction isn't the best and I'd be totally lost in Australia as I'd be looking for the Big Dipper and the North Star to get my bearings! :laughing:

Anyway, nice grabs on this, Greg :thumbsup:

Thanks John :D It is a bit different to most trails that you would see. Well if you ever make it down under I would gladly be your night sky tour guide mate :D
