    This is a recent star trail i have done. Thankfully, where i am staying is dark enough for this, especially as the night was freezing cold. so i set up the camera and went indoors in the warmth, a much better way of doing star trails :) once uploaded i realised i had captured a shooting star (hence the title), made me smile

    this is 236 images stacked

    Very good indeed but I think the Mods need to give you a one month ban for quoting a Chris de Burgh song :)

    I agree - though that particular one deserves at least 6 months IMO - and I'm a CDB Fan :blush:

    Jim, that probably qualifies you a very long journey on a spanish train for admitting to being a Fan :)

    Great shot, really impressive. Did you light the trees in a single frame? Any problems with condensation on the lens - that is what ruined my only star trail attempt to date :facepalm:
