Polar star trails all night long!


Unguided photo taken with a Hasselblad 503CW camera mounted on a tripod with a Carl Zeiss Distagon 50mm f/4 C T* lens at f/8 using Kodak Ektachrome E200 film with an exposure of 7 hours started at 9:22 PM on April 9, 2005 in Ellenville, NY. The red glows are my telescope and laptop. I started the exposure at about the end of astronomical twilight and ended at about its start before dawn. This is my longest continous film exposure to date. The cutout in the corner is the roof of the porch on which the camera and tripod were set up to help avoid dew. The glow on the horizon is from Ellenville three miles North.
