Star Trails II

Just received my new remote shutter release. So what better way to test it out than on some long exposures of the night sky. These were taken right outside my house from the back yard. Can’t wait to get somewhere really dark to play with this. This was a 11+ minute exposure at f/3.2 ISO 100, no noise reduction, 50mm. Look closely and you can see the path of either a plane or a satellite. I was inside where it was warm as this was exposing so I didn’t see it with my own eyes!



No light painting here - the trees are illuminated from lights at neighboring homes, etc.
