tree lined star filled

Newer Older

seems like all my equipment is breaking, including my internet connection. very annoying.

this is looking west around 10:30pm April 28th, 2011. it was on a tracker, but my intervalometer was one of the things that broke, so I could only get 30 second exposures. trees painted with an LED torch.

the focus problem with my 8mm fisheye is very obvious in the flaring/blurring of the stars. need to fix that.

anyway: 8mm f3.5, 30 seconds, iso1600

    Interesting anyway. I like the differences caused by the different light sources ;)
