Default Star Trails...using Spy's advice

Hello again everyone,

Spy, i decided to give your tips on shooting the star trails a shot tonight since it was clear and i finally have time off of work to do photography again.

Nothing to spectacular in the way of foreground matter, but it was a test shoot to put your tips to use, and to me it worked really well.

Let me know what you think

-Travis-
Photo was taken using a tripod with cable release, Canon XSi, 18-55mm lens, ISO 1600, 30 second exposures stacked together in Photoshop CS5

Good practice, tswen.

Shame the composition / foreground is rather bland, but as for technique, you've done a good job I think.

I'm curious - was it not windy at all? (the trees seem reasonably 'crisp' for such long exposures!)

There are a few lines to the right, which I think is maybe an aircraft (straight / dotted) and maybe also a satelite (just straight)?

Good patience!

Paul
