  • The inland allows a beaut view to the stars


    G'day all

    A regular star-trails pic from a roadside overnight-stay location in the outback. It was a night with a nearly-full moon, and as we were alongside the highway we also copped headlights shining onto the trees - and you can see the red lights of passing trucks in the lower right corner

    1)- image made from 200 exposures of 30 seconds each, stacked using 'Startrails.de' software

    exif- Panny FZ-2500; 30sec x F5,0; ISO-1600; lens at 1x zoom / 24mm FFequiv

    As always, feedback welcome
    Phil

    That's a lot of shots Phil. Great result. I've heard that software is very good. Does it take long to get the end result?

    I dusted once and it came back. I'm not falling for that again!
    I never make the same mistake twice. I do it like, five or six times, you know, to make sure.

      Time to stack - not much really. I didn't time these 200 but probably 3 minutes ... you have 2 options for merging and I select the qwik-fix one

      That's cool. Not even enough time for a cuppa!

    Looks good Phil. As Isac that's a lot of shots. You should try again on a darker night without the traffic.

      Interesting to see that result. Another toy to play with.

        Thanks fellas ... I have dozens of similar shots (funny how the southern cross always seems to come out as a circle! )

          I have tried this a long time ago and if I remember I sucked at it. So I stopped doing these.
          So well done on being able to get shots stack and packed as you have.
          Show it how it is and not how you want it to be.

            G'day Ralph

            With good software it becomes "reel ezy" mate

            Go to "www.startrails.de" and download their free program... to install you just click the main file and is asks 'what language?' and then it does the rest for you. To stack images you (same as in all Windows) select the 50-100-200-300- whatever images and then sit back with your glass of VB or XXXX or Red wine or brandy (or whatever) and watch it all being created in front of you. At the end it asks "JPG? or TIFF?" and you save the result

            I will wait for a while as I really don't like being outside while it is so cold around here at night.
            But in summer we have got clear skys a real lot of the time. So then I can set up and know no clouds will get in the way.
            Thanks for the info and I will bookmark that site.
        Working...
