    Yes it's a lovely capture you got. What do you mean by stacked images?

    I'm a total noob.

    Look at this :(. A practically live picture!!

    It's inspired me to have a go.

    I read up how to do it this arvo, trying it now in the back garden using a time lapse setting (no foreground subject this time - just to see if I can get the trails)

    ;)

    Brilliant... Just be aware of light pollution in and around towns etc, slightest bit can have a huge impact and ruin a photo. I'm currently laid in a field with the camera going :) will post tomorrow

    Enjoy

    1st attempt - not great, but at least it worked :)

    Loads of aircraft trails, light pollution and plenty of hot pixels (almost didn't bother posting it)

    [​IMG]

    I don't really fancy lying in a field somewhere, and I can't think of any interesting foreground subject nearby.

    I may park the idea of star trail photos until I'm somewhere more inspiring :smashin:
