I had planned this time exposure for some time, I just needed a clear night (some what rare in Ireland). The exposure was 45mins, and I had one candle between the two rooms upstairs and one downstairs which was almost too much.

Camera used was a Canon 50D. Lens was a Canon 10-22mm 3.5-4.5 USM. 45min at ISO 100.

    Nice job, interesting how the north star is so close above that tower. Good perspective.

  • thank you.

    I want to try some long exposures like this. Very nicely done.

  • It was about 45mins at ISO 100 to give you an idea, and I only used a candle to light the rooms, anything else would have been too much.

    Very well done! I was not aware that the 50D could do open ended exposures like this up to 45 minutes. That is amazing! It must have been a perfectly pitch black night with no moon, too. Excellent!

    Thank you Aaron. Yes the 50D certainly can do long exposures- just set the camera to manual or TV and wind the exposure out to BULB. It was a great night for this shot- no moon as you said, and very still.

    Fantastic. Most star trails are done in the great outdoors, I’m impressed with the way you’ve positioned your camera in respect to the North Star.
    Wonderful image

  • thank you very much Jesika.
