Star trails
« on: February 17, 2018, 01:15:09 PM »
Hi,
This was supposed to be a comp entry for Flash but I didn't have any batteries for my flash gun.  :uglystupid2:

Anyway, I had about 20 mins to spare before picking up up of my children from a party and thought I'd try star trails, as its been a while since I have tried this.
I was struggling to find a free star trails software for my Mac and ended up buying the star trails App by Apple for £5.99. `I thought this was reasonable and if it turned out to be rubbish I wouldn't be too upset about losing £6.

I'm fairly pleased with the star trails but need to try more now and see if i can improve.

Any thoughts/suggestion appreciated.

Cheers

Chris

Thanks guys. Appreciate the comments.
That had been the plan simple. I could kick myself for not having fresh batteries. But I'll go back soon and try again.

I did some years ago when in the Pyrenees - was proper dark and this was about 900 seconds - pure fluke that I was pointing northish



I'm planning on getting a astro tracking mount soon as I'd like to get some decent Milky way shots amongst others.

Very nice Mark. Was that one long exposure? Mine was about 50 (ish) photos stacked in the Apple star trails app that I was quite pleased with.
