Star Trails At Dusk by CapturingTheNight Star Trails At Dusk by CapturingTheNight

I love Autumn (Fall). Generally nice crisp clear nights. I have done a few star trails in the past but this is the first I have felt like sharing. If you look hard enough you should be able to make out a very small meteor strike.

This is a stacked image of 291, 30 second exposures.

Other camera info:
Canon EOS 60D
Aperture F/3.5
ISO 400
10mm Focal Length using a Tamron 10-24mm Lens

I am an amateur astronomer and I have to say that this is a really good execution of the classic star trail photo. The first thing that I noticed was the light peaking out of the corner of the photo from the sun. I love the way the stars appear to fade off as they approach it. The second thing I noticed was the composition of the photo. I like how you shot the concentric circles, but I feel that it is too centered on the photo. On the other hand, you would not gotten the glimmer of light in the corner. Everything else about it is simply beautiful. You don't seem to have any noise that interferes with the photo. The colors are simply spectacular as well. Finally, I would like to congratulate you on doing such an amazing job!

Wow, that's an awesome picture!
I should also try one of these once. The only problem is, that it doesn't get dark at all at the moment, so I havn't seen a single star for a few weeks now

wonderful! I really like the fact that you stacked a lot of images here to generate more complete circles

Thank you so much for the kind feedback. :D It means a lot. Stacking the images is kind of the cheats way but it does eliminate a lot of the noise and if something happens to one of the frames then all is not lost.

if I refer to a book on how to photograph stars and skies it's not considered as cheating with today's technologies as they recommend that method :D
