Armed with my camera and tripod I headed up the hill again last night. My idea was to have a go at getting a star trail photo. I knew I had about an hour to get the shots in before the Moon started to rise and. So starting before full astronomical darkness I set up my camera and started to take the shots. I decided that I would face north so the stars would rotate around Polaris. I set my camera at 18mm to a ISO of 1600 and a F 5.6. I took shots for 1 minute each. Tbh its all a great learning curve. Next time I will wait until the sky is properly dark. As the first few pictures came out a bit on the bright side. My next target was the Milky way. I probably should have had a tracking mount for this one as the stars are starting to trail even with a shot of just 40 seconds. Finally I got in a quick shot of Orion before the Moon rose and I headed home.
