A star trails image taken in Stark County, Ohio (USA). My first attempt at doing a star trails shot. This definitely won’t be the last.

This image was made by processing 80 Raw images (each at 30.0 sec, f/4.0, ISO 500) in Photoshop CS3 using the Statistics script in Maximum mode.

The few streaks that are barely visible are clouds that made their way through the sky. I think they gave some neat effects.

Equipment Used:
Nikon D700 DSLR Body
Nikon (Nikkor) 16mm – 35mm f/4.0 AF-S ED
