Did the Earth speed up that night?
Sixteen seconds is nowhere near enough to get a trail that looks like a 30 mins shot.

This is the movement in 30 minutes. (excuse the ampglow, I found out all about it when I took this shot.)

Great shots Alvin!

I notice that if you divide the first shot diagonally the streaks in the upper/lef half bow upward while those in the lower rifht bow downward?



In my teens (when not relevent) a friend of mine ejoyed creating un-explainable looking photos with a ufo under tone. I had a Sterling 400mm 6.3 lens (a knock of of the leitz telyte 2 element 400mm 6.3 lens) . I tripod mounted the camera and lens and took a picture of a star without compensating for earth rotation. The star cam out as a blueish eliptical (less than 1/8" on the slide) with what looked like a amber protrussion on the top that struch up very slightly but the extended 90 degrees to the side like a flame (as if a jet with a flame from the engine).

My friend and I went to a ufo convention in ufo convention at a hotoel in nyc and as we sat and listended to a lectorer I held up the slide for my friend to see as if he never saw it and I pointed out the jet burner on top of the ptential ufo.

wo little old ladies that sat in seat behind us over heard me (as was my intention) and asked to see the slide and they both were so amazed and impressed by the assumed detail.

Actually the P880 itself is unable to take shots of star trails, so I took a sequence of 180 shots, and merged them together with Photoshop 7.0

That's commitment.
I think I would have taken three shots and use Photoshop to join the dots.

I think the P880 has a mode that does the shots for you. You just pick the delay and set it off. So not too much commitment required.

Nice photo.

Nice photo.

You mean the time lapse mode? I tried, but it limits the exposure time for each shot at 0.5 seconds in maximum.
