p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Bristlecone Pines


This is from a few weeks ago. The moon was almost full and really lighting the place up. It was bright enough to really wash out the Milky Way, but startrails seemed to work fine. This shot is my experimenting with taking 60 shots of 30 sec exposures and then I used the Startrail program to stack them. It's my first time using it, and it did a really great job. You can load it with all the shots, and 1 dark frame, and it goes to work. I then blended the star portion in with a shot that gave a bit more foreground. So this is two 14mm shots with a slight overlap to get more foreground area.

Each stacked shot was ISO 2000, 25 sec at f4 as it was bright out.

All comments are welcome,

Jim

Jim,

Very cool! I wish I did some stars when I was at bristlecone. I like how you lined up the trees to be all pointing at the center.

Did you camp out close by or drive in at night?

which grove was this?

Hi Jim,

You created a very dramatic effect by breaking up the star trails with all the short images

Jim,

This is such a cool image. Maybe I will try it sometimes to see how it works out. Thank you for sharing.

I really want to try star trails now. Are you putting together a show for star trails? You have quite a selection at this point. The trees leaning towards the North Star is a really great touch!

Very cool. Because of vignetting, the star trails look like an inward spiral that is about to suck in the trees

Jim,
Nice desolation and great star trails. Not something I've tried much (just twice) but this looks great.

Thanks so much Jason! This was the Patriarch Grove area. I just camped up there as I was shooting pretty late and then waking up very early to shoot the sunrise. It wouldn't have been practical to have driven back to Bishop to sleep.

Thanks so much Dan, yeah, this Samyang 14mm is a pretty sweet lens!

Yeah, I was thinking on shooting the Perseides shower, but I am wondering... will we really be able to capture? I was thinking that the meteor's would be moving so fast that they wouldn't really be captured would they? Or are there tricks to doing it?
