Orbital Motion

View Large On Black


The very bright streak is Jupiter traversing the sky, it's a great time to look for our solar system's biggest planet! And don't miss the Perseid Meteor Shower right around the corner peaking Aug. 12th, it should be a good year for it!


This is one of my first stacked star trail images, usually in the past I used slide film or used 15-30 min exposures. For this image, 62 1 min 11 sec exposures 1 sec apart were combined with this free Photoshop action. Others you might want to try, especially if you need a stand alone if you don't have PS are here and here. Enjoy!
