Ballintoy Startrails

Technical bit: On a clear night I located the North (or pole star). This star is static and the earth rotates around the pole star (just out of shot). I then took over 100 30 sec shots, with the earth's rotation being captured. These images are then stacked which will then show the earth's rotational movement. And that's about it.


One of the most memorable views along the North Antrim coast is Ballintoy Church, was founded by the Stewart family who settled on the north coast in 1560


Press the 'L' key, much better bigger.
