First night of star trails

I have entered the world of night photography and absolutely love it. This exposure was exactly 1000 seconds! Believe it or not, I do not have a cable release for my camera YET. Yes, that means that I held my finger on the shutter for 1000 seconds. (Almost 17 minutes.)

I wrapped my hand around my camera neck strap and waited while sitting in a lawn chair. I am surprised at how sharp it is considering. I do plan on buying a release very soon!
