Only One Frame

This took a long time!

Bridge and Star Trails

I’m still working on star trails. The large version (the one on the other end of a click on the photo) is larger than usual today in hopes of being able to show the stars that I couldn’t even see as I sat on the rocks waiting for the shutter to snap closed.

I’m glad the exposure worked reasonably well, as the camera is rendered unusable for longer than the exposure itself.  So, the whole assembly had to stay parked and untouched for 25 minutes.

Polaris (the North Star) is the brightest dot in the mid-upper left of the frame.  The rest of the stars spin around it.

ISO 50, 10 minutes @ f/22, 16mm.
