Star Trails

Star Trails

Star Trails

It wasn’t the best night for star gazing, clouds coming and going, but it gave me some idea what is possible.

Setting my camera on a tripod in northeast Nebraska, where the night sky is not contaminated with city lights, I tried several combinations of shutter speed and ISO.  My first attempt at making star trails, the results are encouraging.

Thought for the Day:  It’s lovely to live on a raft.  We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened.    Mark Twain
