Flying Leap [5_019888-95] *Explored*
10 four minute exposures at f/3.5, ISO 400, 10mm focal length were combined to produce this image. Shot from 9:33 PM to 10:57 PM, PT. As you may be able to tell, this is a view to the South-southwest from the Northern Hemisphere. You can compare how a Western and Northern view differ in the resulting star trails (the Western view is from near this location, the Northern view is from a completely different location.
If you look carefully, you can spot three equidistant, equally bright stars in the upper left - those are the stars in Orion's belt.
Details on how I made this are available on my website.
All lighting provided by stars and moonlight.
Looks good bigger.
