These images are composites of multiple frames: 25, 53, 76, and 157, so at 30 seconds per exposure, the images capture 12, 25, 38, and 78 minutes of star movement.  I use free software called StarStaX to blend them all trails star trails star trails star trails

Night Sky

Prospecting for Eta Aquarids meteors – none in this frame.  Looking southeast, thirty second exposures f/4.0, 17MM ISO 6400.  I set the camera up at 10:30 and set a self-timer delay for 3-1/2 hours, so it would start making exposures around 2AM.   Mars is low at right.


These next two are consecutive 30 second frames showing an aircraft (given away by the strobing beacon lights), and a satellite that brightened and dimmed during the 60 seconds it took to make these images.

There are meteors in both of these images:

Twin satellites – interesting:

Morning yoga class was cancelled, so I shot a few frames off the parking deck at Martha Jefferson Hospital and mashed them together in Photoshop.  A single jet’s contrail betrays my technique…Sunrise
