Starflight over Pointy Land

65 exposures were combined in Long Streaks mode using the Advanced Stacker PLUS software. I also used a technique that is described in this video to bring out the unpainted foreground.


I just let the camera run while helping students with their shots. A light bit of high clouds helped to "smear" the stars a bit and make their color more apparent. For example the bright star Antares is visible dashing between two of the towers as a red "comet".
