Okair Star Trails

I consider this one my first successfull star trail photo.

I used the digital way of making star trails.

details here:

the exposue is about 3 hours and I used Nikkor 10.5 fisheye on my previous camera (Nikon D200).

the tent on the foreground was only illuminated during the first 30 sec of the exposure.

Around 360 of 30-seconds photos were merged using StarTrails 1.0 software to generate this long exposure.

Because I used JPEG, the quality is not upto the level.

Desert next to Okair beach, Al Ahsaa, Saudi Arabia.

Honestly, I'm almost to tears whenever I see photos like this. It just reminds me of how effing awesome us humans are to be able to have eyes to see the many wonderful features of our universe. This is awesome.

A program has been made that does all the work for you.

It's called StarTrails.exe.

It can be found here: [link]

Thank you for your advice.

I acutally used the same program to combine the photos which produced this one.

thanks again.
