Default Outback campfire under the stars

G'day all

One from some time ago - I have always liked the location and photo ambience


64 images of 30 secs stacked via 'startrails.de' software

As always, feedback welcome
Phil

Hi Bynx ol' mate

Tiz easy - like many things "once you've done it a few times"
Easiest part is the software - created by Anton Schiller a German photographer & astronomer it's a free download from 'startrails.de'

Otherwise it's "M mode x 18-55 @ 18 x MF [AF doesn't work real-good at night] x 800ISO x NR=off x many 30-sec exposures" then stacked via Startrails.exe and maybe some minor PP if you feel inclined

Thanks for sharing the info on how it's done Phil.
The location looks great and I like the illumination of the trees by the campfire, that works well.
