startrails

this was my very first attempt on startrails.

 

i used a 10-20mm lens at 14mm with f/5 and took 80 25-second exposures over a period of about 70 minutes. there was about 30-sec. break after every exposure as my camera couldn't process it any faster.

 

i stacked the photos together in photoshop using actions, and used diffuse to correct the pearl stringiness of the trails. does anyone happen know another way of doing the latter?

 

i only slept one and a half hours because of this time taking project and it was freezing outside as well! fortunately i had some tea in a thermos and music with me. anyhow, i think i might go again tonight, depending on the cloud situation of course. it's really addictive!
