Dedication and time are the best ingredients for a shot such as this one and :devkopfgeist79: has used both to create this amazing scene.

Star trails

This kind of picture you can get in a starry night. Just fix your camera on a tripod, switch to the bulb function (if available) and expose. This image was taken during three hours. In those three hours, the stars went further on, because of the rotation of earth. The builing in the foreground is the Weikersheim observatory, in which I take my astronomic pictures. See the right above the tree, it is a meteor.

Did you stack the images??
kopfgeist79's avatar
Yes, this was a stack of 180 images with one minute exposure time each. :)
